Designed outside Washigton DC by Carter and Burton Architecture, this small scale structure integrates a sophisticated green , geothermal heating system that provides heating and cooling water for the needs of the house. The Yoga studio’s structure features indigenous trees masterfully engineered to meet green specifications by Building Logistics. The house itself saves 30-40% energy and retains from rainfall 70%of its needs.

The whole concept of the house is outlined by Carter and Burton “The limited size of the existing house created a need for more space for friends and family and the privacy needed to meditate and enjoy yoga in this natural setting. The charge to build a private yoga studio afforded the opportunity to experiment with construction in a different expression from the main house while being sympathetic, not sentimental.”
