Living garden softens cold structure

Living garden softens cold structure

The Feng Shui of a home is very different that the approach of commercial buildings. In a home, we look for balance and harmony, for Yin energy to relax in specific areas. In commercial premises we encourage much more Yang energies in order to keep things moving and business thriving.

I believe photos replace a thousand words, here are some illustrations of Sydney Central Shopping Centre that show good examples for a Feng Shui commercial approach (and NO, I haven’t designed this one):

  1. Exterior
    The angular finish of this very tall building hosting a shopping centre on his first few floors is tastefully accompanied with hanging gardens. Real green plants in an urban busy environment brings the idea of health and life.
  2. Attracting Chi to a specific area
    Escalators move Chi upwards and downwards. In this photo, we see how important mirrors are doubling this effect. In addition to the doubling effect, the healthy green plants on each side are also doubled and enhance a great feeling.

  3. Movement on every floor
    The design of the various floors of this building shows a variety of shapes bringing active Chi flow. Each floor has a different purpose, for example one of its floors is a healthy and quality food court, another one is a creative and artistic level offering opportunities to artists and art enthusiasts.

  4. Moving Chi with help of Modern Technology
    The IT Slide Shows on the screens in the foyer attracts the eye with colours, and various features. This is what I call a very nice modern approach of good Feng Shui! Well done 🙂

  5. A Question remains though
    The whole project looks great to me; having said that, I have only one doubt… The roof above the first floors is made of glass covered with shallow moving water. I would question this feature from a Feng Shui perspective as I would have designed a sky above our heads instead of a permanent moving water.
    A question remains... Is moving water on glass roof good feng shui

Food for thoughts.
