The Wabi house is a conceptual work of modern art and architecture. It takes the inhabitant through a journey from the entryway to its farthest room. As you enter the property, a series of concrete stones lead the entrant un-expectantly to a large black wooden wall of burnt cedar. Still unable to view any semblance of a house, a door opening leads to a confined exterior space with a sunken pond of Lillie pads.

There is a bridge over the pond leading you forward, however, railings are omitted from the bridge to increase ones awareness of their surroundings and continued journey. As you move along, you find a sliding door that finally introduces you into the main living space, including a pebble terrace surrounded by another pond. Once inside the home, you are continually confronted with nature through the Wabi House’s earthy construction and views toward nature.

In an effort to have the inhabitant experience nature at every floor plan of the structure, there is a bedroom on the roof terrace level.

The simplistic modern interior design is just as stunning as the outdoor spaces with exposed wood construction both inside and outside the home.
