About The Garden Structure
Our Award-Winning Japanese Tea Houses, reminiscent of authentic rustic versions, are designed to be an art piece in the garden. Every Tea House and its adjacent garden is unique and incorporates both metaphysical and spiritual aspects throughout; some are obvious and others apparent only to those who seek a deeper meaning.
The Japanese Tea House is meant to be functional and useful, as well as be a standalone structure to admire. Our designs always strive to invite interaction with its audience on a number of levels. The three designed stained glass windows carry a theme that is reinforced by the floor pattern and the carved wood overlay on the skylights. The light that passes through the overlay carvings form beautiful patterns that dance on the walls and floor, making the inside of the Tea House feel as though it were vibrating with a gentle light force energy.
Innovative construction is our highest consideration when designing our structures. We use choice wood selected not only to fit the environment, but to enhance the design. We import wood from all over the world looking for interesting color, grain, strength and durability.
Our goal is to align the Tea House on your property to best utilize the spiritual energy, Chi, and then design the surrounding garden to accentuate the cohesion of the entire area. The outside garden is always an extension of the inside space; one should reflect the other. The end result flows in perfect rhythm and continuity as does the River of Life.
Our windows, glass, doors, latches, and carvings are all done by our Amish artisans; there are no readymade standard components used. The design dictates the material used throughout the project and all our structures are signed and numbered for authenticity.
