* Residential Architecture: Tea Houses by Swatt | Miers

Residential Architecture: Tea Houses by Swatt | Miers: “..Architects Swatt | Miers have suspended three glass pavilions over the edge of a valley in northern California..Located in the grounds of the client’s home, the three Tea Houses were designed to provide quiet, contemplative spaces that are free from the distractions of television, internet, telephone and even music..The largest of the three pavilions provides a workspace that can also be used for hosting small parties, while the second is for sleeping and the third was conceived as a meditative space for a single person..Overhanging trees shade the transparent glass walls, which are held in place by horizontal steel joists and vertical concrete cores..A bathroom bridges the largest of the two rooms and underfloor heating keeps each space warm..”  Lovely site, views; expansive glazing, skylights, natural light; interesting materiality, contextual sensibility..
