House 5: DE LAM

Nestled on a hillside amidst junipers, De Lam or “Joyful Path”, is a unique house consisting of two round buildings made of compacted adobe.

Although centrally located in the Retreat Valley with easy access to the main road, the bedroom and practice space feels secluded and quiet. Adobe construction helps keep temperatures comfortable during warm or cool weather. There is room for meditation and moderate movement practices on a new cork floor.

The separate kitchen building has beautiful tile flooring and a ceiling fan. The bathroom is located between the kitchen and living structures.
