We participated in an architectural tender for the construction of a new nursing center in Teufen, Appenzell, Switzerland. On this plot of land there was an existing structure that could either be included into the construction of the new center or that could be demolished and the whole new center be built from scratch. According to a study of the Teufen community both options would have required similar expense. We opted to submit a project that would be built from scratch, in order to create the energy generated by the Vastu principles with much more accuracy.
This proposed design was selected as a finalist but unfortunately did not win the tender. However, our team did have the rewarding experience of planning a larger-scale Vaastu project.
