Vastu Shastra Plan of A House

Vastu Shastra Plan of A House

There is a constant interaction between Man and the surrounding natural elements like the Sun, Wind, Air, Water, Earth’s magnetic field and the directions. Man benefits from the useful, positive effects of these Natural elements but needs to be protected from their harmful and negative effects. Vastu Shastra lays down guidelines on the ‘design, location, direction and disposition of the Interior and Exterior spaces of a House’ so that the inmates derive maximum benefit from  the natural elements and there is a natural flow of positive energy through all the rooms.

Vastu Guidelines for all the Interior spaces or rooms of a House

These guidelines are based on scientific reasoning and common sense and when applied correctly create well-lit, well-ventilated, spacious, aesthetic,  and well-designed rooms and House. A properly designed House  will naturally create ‘contentment’, ‘peace’ and ‘serenity’ for the inmates and the Owner will be proud of and happy to live in it. As an Architect practising in India, I have explained the scientific reasoning behind these Vastu guidelines.

    The vastu principles that are applicable to India which is in the northern hemisphere cannot be applied to places in the Southern hemisphere. But places in the east or west are not affected.

    Hi Garry,
    Everything seems to be fine according to me. keep the SW bedroom as the master bed. make sure there is less clutter in all rooms and clear circulation space around the furniture. The windows should be regularly opened.

    Sir we are planning to construct a duplex house in a 50/40 plot can u kindly suggest us as to where the car garage should be placed we are planning to have the main door in the south east of South with a portico and one more door in the east with a big balcony and the third in the north will it be alright if we plan so.
    Hi Vidya,
    Whatever you have suggested seems to be okay. I am assuming the road is on the south, then the car garage can be in the SE.

    Good day i am from argentina (southamerica) what can i do to apply correctly the vaastu shastra in the south hemisfer? Thanks.
    Hi Patricia,
    Obviously the directions will be quite different and to some extent opposite to those in India. So as a thumb rule, just make sure that there is ample light and ventilaion in all rooms of your house, throughout the year. Have lots of windows towards the sunlight.

    WANTED TO KNOW , I HAVE MADE A HOUSE IN RECTANGLE BUT I WANTED TO HAVE A BALCONY ON WEST SIDE AS EXTENSION ON FIRST FLOOR OR ON SOUTH SIDE WILL IT AFFECT VASTU SINCE IT LEADS TO EXTENSION OF SOUTH SIDE OR WEST OF RECTANGLE
    Hi Sumit Lodha,
    A balcony extension is not considered an extension of the house. And anyway, a balcony in the south or west is advantageous as it cuts sown the amount of hot afternoon sun entering the house from these directions.

    Dear Sir,
    Are there any constraints or limitations on shape of house? Is it required to be rectangle shape?
    Appreciate your inputs,
    Regards,
    Rama.
    Hi Ramakrishna,
    Not many constraints, just that all corners should be 90 degrees as this ensures a more efficient plan and can accommodate furniture well.
