One Coast homes radiate an uplifting, harmonious energy — or in other words, good feng shui. As Dwell details, the oceanfront community’s unique orientation, facing the Pacific Ocean and leaning against the Santa Monica Mountains, reflects a directional principle known to bring good luck. And as for the design elements that promote good feng shui at One Coast? Waterworks® freestanding, oval soaking tubs that perfectly balance angular, square showers. Kitchens with sliding doors that usher in good Chi via an outdoor patio. Sprawling rooftop terraces with mountain views to the left and ocean views to the right. And that’s just to name a few. Dive into the two feng shui readings by Master Zhi Wang, below.
The feng shui reading of Townhome 303 addressed design elements that align with positive feng shui principles — starting with the first floor hallways, which are lined with artwork and therefore provide good energy to guests as they flow toward the guest bedroom. Townhome 303’s back patio is noted to offer homeowners protection and a sense of security. Dwell points out that “this design choice aligns with the community’s overall sense of privacy and security, with its 24/7 guard gate.” Townhome 303’s sprawling rooftop terrace is also identified as offering “good Feng Shui with its expertly positioned location of views of the mountains on the left and views of the ocean to the right.”
As stated in Dwell’s writeup, Master Wang points out that the seamless flow from the entry way into the home’s living area and kitchen provide a good “first Feng Shui impression for the energy flow into the home,” while “the kitchen, which opens up onto sliding doors and on an outdoor patio, excites the body, ushering in good Chi.” Circular shapes in design — such as the spherical chandelier and lamp within Townhome 604’s primary bedroom — are noted to represent infinity and “can be particularly good omens for a strong marriage.” Finally, the oceanfront retreat’s oval soaking tub is described to balance the bath’s square, angular shower, which ushers in “a healthy flow of Chi in the space.”
