Your window on the world
Sometimes just changing a window improves the energy flow of a house.
On a new house project, the architectural plan called for the placement of a horizontal unit fairly high on the wall above the midway stair landing. This layout provided no exterior view at either the base of the stairs or at the landing.
I felt that this was a missed opportunity.
Fortunately the owner trusted me to make the best call. We made a few changes to the plan and got the windows right throughout the building. How cool.
Stairways are powerful conduits of chi within a home.
Our bodies react naturally to the flow of activity; as we go up the stairs, as we go down the stairs, we look outwardly. It is our window on the world – standing at the entry foyer and on the upstairs landing.
It was the right decision!
