Garden Room and Yoga StudioMcLean, VA
The client hired FORMA to redesign the Garden Level of this home in the woods, and transform it into a family room and Yoga studio, where the client practices and teaches Yoga. Natural and earth friendly materials in a neutral pallette play up the zen feeling throughout. Sliding shoji screens with translucent plexi panels imbedded with natural grasses provide privacy during meditation. Heated bamboo flooring makes the yoga experience sublime. An exterior cedar deck extends into the woods for a meditative after-yoga walk.
The project was featured in "Home & Design" magazine in the Fall of 2005, in Synthesis magazine in February of 2006, and in Washington Spaces magazine in November/December 2007.
