Meditation Pavilion by David Coleman Architecture

Sitting astride a picturesque pond side in American northeastern countryside, the Meditation Pavilion is a tiny space used as a respite, a place to sit quietly in the nature and observe the surrounding beauty.

Composed of a curved brick wall, a wood-framed roof and a platform suspended above the water, the pavilion is almost completely engulfed by its autumnal environment.

A Rumford fireplace marks the center of the pavilion and a bench wraps the other three sides. The aromatic cedar provides warmth and the scent of connection to Source.

Inspiration from architect:

This building provides a sensorial experience that lifts the spirit and transcends the mundane, resulting is a sense of stillness that is at once poetic and exhilarating.
