Space Matters PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Space Matters free pdf "Space Matters" is a unique design book that will demystify the question of why some spaces work and some don't- it presents interior design based in the ancient Indian design science of Vastu. Vastu is the only design philosophy in the world that uses the human body as the guiding force in the use of space. It is the precursor to Feng-Shui and a sister science to Yoga and Ayurveda. What Yoga is for the body, Vastu is for the place in which you live.In the author's modern adaptation of Vastu, the reader will understand that space matters in a deep fundamental way, as does the use of lighting, colour and materials. Even the shape of objects and the placement of furniture in a room contribute to our wellbeing or lack of wellbeing. The goal is to create interior environments that appeal to us visually and viscerally, to the mind, body and soul. Through 5 chapters, Kathleen Cox takes us through the principles as they apply to home design. Extensive examples of Vastu principles at work are presented through the author's own designs and those of 11 of the most prestigious contemporary architects and designers working today including Sarah Susanka (creator of the Not-So-Big House series), Paula Baker-LaPorte (founder of EcoNest in Sante Fe and Doug Atherly (Kinari Design, London). As a group, these are some the foremost promoters of green design.This is not merely another catalogue of great design work. The author presents questions and answers, before and after photos and images specifically designed to clearly explain the principles of Vastu at work in the home. The "home as sanctuary" movement continues to grow in popularity and importance. Today, we want our living space to promote a sense of calm and well-being. Working with Vastu makes this possible for everyone.
