Portuguese design agency MESA Atelier has revealed renderings for Lotus Home, a yoga studio embedded into the panorama of a cliffside in Oleiros, Portugal. Composed of pure supplies, the proposal spans two flooring outfitted to maximise solar publicity and pure air flow.
Self-supporting shale stone partitions shall be featured throughout the bottom ground and basement to help temperature regulation and the humidity of the soil. Wood ceilings shall be painted darkish pink to advertise mindfulness as nicely. Frequent areas on the bottom ground, just like the tearoom, shall be accessed by way of a metallic spiral staircase resulting in the yoga room on the higher stage. Glass façades will infuse considerable daylight into the versatile yoga studio, the place pine wooden shall be prominently featured to convey a way of consolation and tranquility.
A roof backyard will even crown the pavilion, releasing the central space for yoga. Pine planks painted pink will line the backyard, whereas joints shall be left open to make sure permeability and help of onsite irrigation. MESA Atelier architect João Varela provides, “Whereas the bottom ground merges with the soil and the panorama, as a consequence of using stone, the higher ground is constructed of pine wooden and levitates between the treetops, projecting in direction of the valley.”
