Meditation House Plans: “Floating”
Architect David Jameson was inspired by a tea house idea when he developed this subtle yet stunning meditation house plan. Consisting of a volume suspended within a frame, Japanese architecture inspired this glass and steel home as a space for meditation, relaxation and reflection.
In contrast to its floor-to-ceiling glazed walls, a solid wood door welcomes you in, complementing the natural woody surroundings while providing a sure separation between indoors and out, raw and refined, wild and sophisticated. Illuminated only by floor lamps, this forest home is a glowing beacon in the night air. David Jameson
