SHEN RESIDENCE

 

"So, the design was to reinterpret using their cultural background as the basis, but to do it in a modern way."

"The resulting design integrates principles from feng shui, a set of spatial laws meant to direct energy, and siheyuan, a historical courtyard house. "

 

The home, for instance, lies on a north-south axis, an element that comes from Eastern philosophy—the front door allows you to enter from the south and proceed through the home to the more intimate spaces on the northern end." ~ Shirley Shen Dwell Magazine
