At Sri Yug Constructions, we understand the importance of creating supportive and nurturing environments for individuals seeking assisted living. We believe that every detail, from the physical space to the flow of energy, contributes to the well-being and comfort of our residents. Vastu Shastra, the ancient Indian science of design, offers valuable insights into creating harmonious spaces that promote safety, peace, and well-being in assisted living facilities.

The Power of Design:

Vastu Shastra emphasizes creating balanced and positive energy flow through design principles. By incorporating these principles in your assisted living facility, you can:

  • Enhance resident comfort and well-being: A well-designed layout with positive energy flow is believed to contribute to a more peaceful and calming environment, promoting resident comfort and faster recovery.

  • Improve safety and accessibility: Vastu principles emphasize clear pathways and well-lit spaces, which can contribute to improved safety and ease of movement for residents.

  • Foster a sense of community: Design elements that promote interaction and social spaces can help residents feel connected and supported, fostering a sense of community within the facility.

Key Vastu Considerations for Assisted Living Facilities:

  • Plot Shape: Ideally, the plot should be square or rectangular for optimal energy flow.

  • Entrance: The main entrance should be placed in the north, east, or northeast zone, welcoming positive energy and visitors.

  • Resident Rooms: Ideally, rooms should be square or rectangular and positioned in the east, south, or west zones. Avoid placing them in the southwest corner.

  • Common Areas: These are best placed in the northwest or northeast zones, promoting interaction and social connection.

  • Gardens and Open Spaces: Integrating natural elements like gardens and open spaces in the east or northeast zones can promote well-being and a connection to nature.

  • Stairwells and Lifts: These should be located in the west or northwest zones, away from resident areas.


  • Professional Guidance: Consulting a qualified Vastu expert is recommended to ensure a comprehensive and personalized approach to your facility's design, considering the specific layout and needs of your residents.

  • Beyond Rules: Vastu Shastra offers guiding principles, not rigid rules. Adapt and integrate them into your existing design concepts and architectural plans, prioritizing the well-being and safety of your residents.

Creating a Haven of Care:

By incorporating Vastu Shastra principles alongside modern design expertise, Sri Yug Constructions strives to create assisted living facilities that:

  • Prioritize resident well-being and comfort.

  • Foster a safe and supportive environment.

  • Promote a sense of community and belonging.
