Wood, glass and feng shui


"Less energy, more well-being" is the motto of this house designed by a feng shui specialist ...

Implement a Feng Shui adapted,flexible, easy to use and aboveclose to me, European, and my aspirations"Was the ambition of LaurenceDujardin when assisted by an architect,she imagined her house. A principle thatnow defends all year long and then -that the former head of specialized businessin importing furniture fromAustralia has become a consultantin feng shui. His goal: to harmonize energy(Qi) homes in order to promotehealth, well-being and prosperityoccupants. We believe in it, we do not believe ...that is not the issue. Taoist ancient art,Feng Shui has the merit to be discreetand go unnoticed in the eyes of Cartesianthat we are. It also has theright to think that if the house is alsopleasant, is first in principleconstructive (solid wood) and its"Climate" design it should.

Attention says Laurence Dujardin, theFeng Shui has nothing to do with the house bioclimatic! Simply, the two approachesare complementary and are in the samemeaning, that of respect for nature. fengshui is required at the time of conception:the plan of the house is divided into nine areasenergy defined from the entrance. Aactivity area is devoted to each zone(Work, love, etc.). In the center, the patio issupposed to be an energy accelerator. fengshui also intervenes when decorating: The furniture location is important,as the choice of colors mood.However, the aspect of climateconstruction is provided by the architecture(Simple and advanced roof volume), environment(Taking account of the vegetationsurrounding), the arrangement of openings(Bay windows southwest benefitingsun all day and warmthe house in winter), reinforced insulation (ofwood fiber under a cedar siding)and the use of a heating systemRenewable Energy (a pellet boilerOf wood).
