An architectural photography assignment for Julia Haensel Architecture documenting an exquisite almost-not-there glass walled meditation space in a garden in Richmond, London, England.
All building materials were brought into the tight garden site by hand via a narrow passage.
The 4 x 8 x 3.2 meter steel & glass meditation and contemplation space is based on Vastu principles. The construction was originally instigated by (Swami) Sri Kaleshwar. The buddha is a 16th century Khmer statue.
The shoot emphasised the quality of architectural detailing and the interplay of reflections with the transparency of the glass walls.
