Tea House by David Jamerson Architect

David Jamerson Architect had designed a hanging bronze and glass 'box', inhabits the backyard of a suburban home. The structure, which evokes the image of a Japanese lantern, acts as a multifunction tea house; meditation space and a stage for the family's musical recitals. After experiencing the image of the lantern as a singular gem floating in the landscpae, 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.
