Commercial Feng Shui Intentional Design
Intentional Design supports the science of place and well being. It underscores the psychology of the space through the principals of the art of placement and the study of the person place connection. Its primary purpose is to use design as a workplace strategy, so as to help manage the cultural shift within any organization. Intentional Design is used as a tool to drive and support goals and desired outcomes. The use of the natural elements, colors and furniture placement are well thought-out to support individual values, such as trust, safety and well-being.
The anticipated outcome is to create human centered environments that foster work- life balance, increased productivity and to limit stress in the work setting. The Intentional Design is seamlessly woven into the interior re- design process to produce a wholistic result.
