Vaastu for High-Rise buildings

Others, May 2017

High-Rise Buildings add charm to the city. They are becoming increasingly popular among the developers, architects, and the end-users.  At a fast-growing rate across the world today, high rise buildings make a great impact as they offer breath taking views of your surrounding areas, offer more comfort, and allow you peace of mind.

A study of the Traditional Indian Architecture shows that the height of the building should be proportional

to its minimum width. Over 90% of the 5.39 million people in Singapore live in high-rise dwellings, which makes it difficult to follow the principles of Vaastu Shastra.

Although it can be challenging to follow Vaastu 100% in such structures, there is still a ray of hope for those looking to follow Vaastu; it is all about rearranging things in a house which can be done without tearing down walls and renovations.

India still has a long way to go with Mumbai and Gurgaon holding the rank of 15 and 33 with 2,485 and 1,141 High-Rises respectively.

From Vaastu perspective, the most important things for a building are their directions of staircases and toilet. If the staircase is in anti-clockwise direction, it is not going to give peace to people residing in the house. Likewise, an incorrectly placed toilet isn’t going to give prosperity. If the rooms don’t have adequate natural ventilation, it is going to affect health.

A villa nowadays, doesn’t necessarily need to be located on the ground floor as smart cities have integrated a concept of vertical villas. So, one can even opt for a duplex in a high rise on 29th or 30th floor. The most important elements of your home are master bedroom, balcony direction, placement of dustbins and toilets.

I believe that India will lead by example for the rest of the world for high-rises in the modern times.
