From the architect
The sky is spherical and the earth is sq.. The supreme manifestation of the in fashion dialectic is the sky and earth, paired as a couple. In between both, lies man.
This dwelling conjures up security and steadiness thru its sq. safe. Immersed in a spherical disagreeable, it conjures up creativity and harmony from the sky. These two shapes -sky and earth- are fresh within the Chinese coin.
Doubtlessly the most important form of the Chinese Coin Home pertains to prosperity. On both its facets, the Milky Scheme modified into once expressed, utilizing the concept that that irradiates prosperity.
The total dwelling’s measurements are based completely within the Golden Number (or Golden Ratio): number Phi (Fi) Phi: 1,618. This number is showcase within the geometrical distribution of patterns, akin to sunflower seeds, a bee’s body, even within the human body. Light Egyptians outdated this concept to originate the pyramids. Light Greeks outdated it to originate the Parthenon. Leonard da Vince applied it to his masterpiece: the Mona Lisa.

The Chinese Coin dwelling modified into once conceived brooding about all these principals, offering traits of an immeasurable label for the wellbeing of the family and guaranteeing the home is constituted as a exact captivating battery. Some of them are:
– The set of the dwelling devices the room’s orientation in an initiate space, freed from any unfavorable carry out which would maybe be created by the crossing of electromagnetic lines, heightened when subterranean water currents meet.
– The harmonic traces of originate apply the shapes and proportions of the sacred geometry, imitating perfection of the universe.
– The definition and location of the vital door of the dwelling guarantees that the chi, the very vital energy, would maybe be attracted within, in a unequivocal and edifying manner.
– The distribution of within areas of the family apply the portray of bigger over smaller, organising the dormitories, lounge, kitchen and toilets, per the four cardinal capabilities.
