TeaHouseDavidJameson2 Meditation Room Shaped Like a Japanese Lantern: Tea House by David Jameson

American architect David Jamesondesigned the beautiful Japanese inspired Tea House consisting of a suspended volume, especially designed in order to serve as a meditation room. Here is the official project description from the architects: “A hanging bronze and glass object inhabits the backyard of a suburban home. The structure, which evokes the image of a Japanese lantern, acts as a tea house, meditation space, and stage for the family’s musical recitals. After experiencing the image of the lantern as a singular gem floating in the landscape, one is funneled into a curated procession space between strands of bamboo that is conceived to cleanse the mind and prepare one to enter the object. After ascending an origami stair, the visitor is confronted with the last natural element: a four inch thick, opaque wood entry door. At this point the visitor occupies the structure as a performer with a sense of otherworldliness meditation“. According to My Modern Met, the floating tea house is illuminated by floor lamps, which makes it quite spectacular to observe during night time.
