This modern dwelling in Grover, Utah was especially developed by Imbue Design to be a desert sanctuary for Tibetan Buddhist practice. Moreover, the building serves as a secondary family residence. Due to the presence of large windows throughout, the indoor-outdoor connection is optimum. The inhabitants are thus offered exquisite views of the surrounding natural environment consisting of a giant red plateau with volcanic rocks and twisted juniper trees.

According to the architects, “the entry deck of the house projects horizontally out into space toward the red rock gateway of the park as the topography slopes down toward the verdant valley below. Down through the deck the user descends toward the entry into a space shaded from the desert sun by the deck above. Entering into the house, the main living space again directs the view outward through a floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall frame of the lush green valley and red plateau beyond“. How would you comment on the architecture of this slightly-unusual Buddhist Retreat?

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic
