Feng Shui can be applied to both landed property and high-rise buildings such as office tower and condominium. The difference is on the availability of space and flexibility for a make- over or renovation. With a landed property, you have more leeway to undertake major renovation based on Feng Shui recommendations because there is abundance of space or land area. However, with apartment or condominium, you have to make do with limited space if you need to renovate your unit. This article will deal with the Feng Shui for high rise units.

Your decision to purchase a unit for own use or investment is usually based on practical reasons but some knowledge of Feng Shui can help to narrow the choice. A unit with good Feng Shui can make a home a comfortable haven to live for prosperity and posterity. It can also make an investment worth its rental return if you choose to rent out.

When it comes to choosing a unit in a high rise building, you need to determine the facing direction of the unit based on the facing of the whole building. In Feng Shui, the facing direction of a building is generally measured by taking the compass direction of the façade of the building (where the direction faces). However, it is often easier said than done because it can be quite difficult to ascertain the façade of a building when the design is not evenly shaped or obvious.

If this is the case, you need to look at the surrounding landforms or man-made structures that point to the most likely facing direction.

The following is a guide to help you find the facing direction of a high rise building:-

-          The side that faces a wide scenery (the architect may have design it to face a beautiful scenery)

-          The side that faces the buildings’ street address such as the main road

-          The side that has the most human traffic and huge lobby entrances

Once you have determined the facing direction of the building, you can then map out the energy pattern (or chart) of your unit based on the Feng Shui systems that you want. Feng Shui popular systems are Eight Houses (some called Eight Mansion) and Flying Stars. 

Please note that not all units in a high rise building share the same energy pattern even though they follow the same facing direction of the building. It depends on which location the units are built into based on the floor plan of the building. By using Feng Shui’s Flying Star formula, the actual location of the unit can be mapped out.

Once the Flying Stars or Eight House chart of the building is ascertained, you need to superimpose the chart over a copy of your unit's floor plan. You can locate your unit's Main Door, Bedrooms and Kitchen based on the Flying Star chart of your unit and find out the stars combination in the aforesaid sectors.

Any auspicious or inauspicious combination of stars in these sectors will have an effect on the occupants from the aspects of health, wealth, career and relationships. For example, a main door with auspicious facing star or combinations of star will bring wealth luck to all the occupants of the unit.

The energy pattern or chart of your unit only tells the internal energy or qi distribution within. You should also look at the external qi distribution for more effective Feng Shui application. The landforms around the building and units has an effect on the Feng Shui of the property especially water and mountain formations.

From the building’s main entrance, you can check for such external landforms. The same with the unit’s balcony which can give you a bird’s eye view of the surrounding such as swimming pool. The latter is also considered a water feature. Where such landforms or man-made structure are located will affect the units differently based on their locations.

Lastly, your unit should be located in a floor where the passage ways are spacious and wide to allow smooth qi flow. The same applies to your unit’s door way. Make sure it is not cluttered. Both the lift to your floor and your unit’s main door are considered qi mouth and should not be obstructed either.
