Our Meditation Cabin begins with the premise of “nothing.” Embracing silence and emptiness, this design offers a retreat from the world’s sensory overload. Inspired by John Cage’s 4’33”, the cabin’s design language focuses on the absence of light, sound, and objects. This is a space defined by pure potential.

The cabin’s form is box-like, with elements akin to piano keys. Opening and closing transform the space, modulating light, sound, and interiority. This space responds to the individual, fostering a meditative experience free from the constraints of tradition.
