Chi living

My fascination for Chinese philosophy and the relation between wellbeing and spaces.

Research has shown that the relation between people and their living and working spaces has a considerable effect on their mood. There’s a desire for flexibility, peace and balance in our habitats.

Chinese philosophy fascinates me. I find the school of thought very interesting, especially how small changes can effect greater balance and harmony. Chi living is my flexible living solution. Chi living is a new way of living at The Student Hotel, inspired by the Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui and the five elements of Wuxing. Each element is linked to a living style which I’ve visualised in a unique studio. Taking centre stage in each living style is the stream of energy known as Chi. These studios are available to let temporarily or for longer periods of time. Pick your Chi element and start living!
