ASID Award 2012 – Meditation RoomShelter Architecture was recently awarded not one but two interior design awards. A daily practice of meditation brought about the homeowner’s desire for a room dedicated to serenity. Finally settling on the pattern and how it would tuck into the room’s walls we had it fabricated with the help of Palladian Builders on a computerized router bed at Feyereisen Studios in Minneapolis. Packed with design ideas for your backyard and front yard, each issue features amazing gardens, beautiful plants, bold products, and insights from the world’s best designers.Subscribers get up to $36 off the cover price. An ethereal stone spiral and a window cut into a fortress wall add a spiritual touch to a garden designed for a couple who wanted to be able to spend a greater amount of time outdoors. This small enclosed space with its Far East feel and wall hung mandala is designed for meditation.
The sound of falling water is an ancient way of focusing the mind in order to let go of stress and problems that plague everyday life.

A courtyard is among the best places for meditation because it is already separated from the outside world. Therefore, controlling the quality of light, day or night, focused the design concept around a custom retractable screen. The wall acts as a display for artwork and artifacts and the picture window, which can be opened or closed reveals the abundance of herons, egrets and waterfowl who inhabit the slough that runs through the adjoining property as well as a herd of Jersey cows and stellar views of the East Bay hills and sunsets.
Research into various meditation traditions focused the design on the use of a Fibonacci sequence. Grasscloth wallpaper adds texture and warmth to contrast the silky smooth surface of the screens. Custom cast chairs and tables surround a fire pit and a table was cast for use as a buffet and bar. You’ll join thousands of design-conscious readers to get gardening inspiration and innovative design solutions for enjoying outdoor spaces.

His practice was not based in a specific religious tradition of meditation so Shelter, headed by Interior Designer Lisa Antenucci, took a more universal approach to his tranquil retreat for contemplation. And the screen pattern, so precisely laid out, even accounts for the overhang of the window sill. The final result: a tranquil, sparse and peaceful retreat that envelops the visitor in a magical cradle of light.
