A Private Space for Contemplation
Inspired by the concept of traditional Japanese teahouse, this tiny dome shaped structure in Austria provides a space for “drinking tea and observing silence”, in architect’s words. Across the garden within the property is the private house where the owner lives. The structure is elevated on 4 pillars to allow vegetation to still grow beneath it.
The organic form is built using small oak wood offcuts provided by a local barrel maker. The timer pieces were then stacked in some 40 layers to form the enclosure. A trapezoid shaped window at the side, and an oval window in the ceiling bring in natural daylight and provided views out to the garden and to the sky above.
