The Qii House Philosophy
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese belief that the way your house is built or the way that you arrange objects affects your success, health and happiness. The feng shui practice discusses architecture in metaphoric terms of “invisible forces” that bind the universe, earth, and humanity together, known as ch’i or qi that literally translates as “breath” or “air”. Historically, feng shui was widely used to orient buildings—in an auspicious manner. A building site could be determined by reference to local features such as bodies of water, stars, a compass or within an ancient ecosystem.
