Protan folio mounted underneath the metal facade / roof. Weight: 25 tons. From the architect. A 55m2 steel object emerges in a rugged landscape framed by naked trees and a silent lake that mirrors in the sky frame window facade. A shelter in its original sense has connotations of basic living serving a merely functional purpose and attending to our primal need of having a roof over our head. “The objective was not to make a house or a mobile home. According to Morten Bo Jensen, the biggest difference between this getaway compared to anything else on the market is the fact that he is not an architect.

At first, the family thought the setting would be perfect for a tree house. Years later, after the 6000 square foot main house was extensively remodeled, the vision was realized as three individual tea houses, places where one could simply retreat into nature. Each tea house is designed as a transparent steel and glass pavilion, hovering like a lantern over the natural landscape. The design emphasizes sustainability. Glass Tea House by Tokujin Yoshioka. Tea ceremonies and tea drinking in general are quite the art form in Japan.

Glass Tea House by Tokujin Yoshioka

It’s deeply rooted in tradition and stands out as a symbolic part of the Japanese culture. Tokujin Yoshioka designed the Glass Tea House as a place to let you appreciate the surrounding nature while taking part in a tea ceremony, but creating a separation with the transparent, modern microcosm. From the designer: The Japanese conception of nature is characterized by its distinctive spacial perception. It involves the sensory realization of the surrounding atmosphere through what may be described as signs of presence, energies, or perhaps the aura. Saint benedict chapel peter zumthor.
