Meditation Hut III by Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

Perched above the north pond edge on the owner’s 14 acres in Champaign, Illinois, “Victor” is a small tea house and meditation hut with three tatami mats.

A ramp leads to wrapped wooden hut with horizontal window, the v-shaped butterfly roof channels rainwater to a central spout over the pond.

Inspiration from architect:

The floor of glossy ebonized birch has the sensation of a deep still pool – the grass tatami mats become an island within an island. The result is an interior volume that is protective and serene but alive with subtle energy.
