Tea Houses are being seen more and more frequently, and as the popularity of these ‘homes’ grows, Swatt Miers Architects has created multiple of these gorgeous glass cased homes in Silicon Valley for a client who had the extra land on a single lot. With so much extra land to spare there was not only one, but three of these miniature retreats nestled into nature.
The overall footprint of these structures is larger than what sets into the land, with the structure cantilevering out to float above the earth. Each of the houses are of varying square footage, too. There are the ‘Meditation’ (270 sf), ‘Sleeping’ (372 sf), and ‘Visioning’ (500 sf) tea homes; in which none have any electronics or connections to the outside world. Very inspiring!
