Sensitivity to the natural setting for a meditative retreat.
Through its careful siting within a grove of Douglas Fir, this small retreat provides a quiet place for exercise and contemplation. The building is set above the ground to lighten its footprint, as its simple form provides an elegant counter point to the surrounding trees and landscape. Thoughtfully placed openings allow light to fill the interior while preserving a sense of privacy. Exposed wood structure and wood finishes provide visual warmth and enrich the contemplative quality of the place.
