Hi world,

Let’s begin with a little care for each of us. Let’s try not to grab the fruit but to share our knowledge. I’m sure we’ll finally be benefited by being benefiting.

I want to give the best of my talent to the world and to optimize the future matrix. We’ll save energy, habitat, green as well as our time.

I am sharing the basic house planning principles. Consult your architect to incorporate these in you home plan. We practice the same as “Vastu-Shastra” in India.

1.Make the room approx 2:3 ratio-This not only makes the room look good, but improves the flexibility in usage
2.Try to consolidate doors-Try to bunch all the doors-from other rooms, external and internal-so that you have continuous furniture keeping space,
3. Alternate side windows-on opposite walls are the best-to create cross ventilation and health.
4.Kitchen Location-Should be opposite to prevailing wind direction.
5.Toilet Location-Should be away from kitchen and preferably on the cross wind corners.
6.L-shaped, long and irregular rooms impair the functionality of the house. Please consult your architect.
7.Try to scribble movable routes from room to room for all and ask your architect to minimize the circulation area.
8.Divide the house into 3 zones-Public, family and private. 1 & 3 should be exclusive.

Some think that Architecture is drawing 4 lines!
Engineers say where to put 4 lines

Don’t suggest solutions! That’s what architect is for. He analyzes what owner want realizingly & else and whether the owner is clear in his thinking?

Architect sees where not to put the lines
He thinks of the sun and wind and beeline services
He thinks about room relationships and exclusions
He thinks of your lifestyle and hands you your future

Give him a budget!!!
He contemplates before drawing that very first line by pencil
He realizes the line chisels the owner’s destiny
He cuts corners by oblique lines & extracts the want of curved lines
