The Monastery | Contemporary Design Example

The Monastery is the name of this project by Arild Eriksen, Joakim Skajaa of Eriksen Skajaa Architectsfor Netlife Research. Netlife wanted their new spaces to feel creative, yet offer spaces for privacy, reflection and silence. Inspired by a monastery garden, the architects designed a brick and wood building partition in the center of a wide open office space that features niches for plants and privacy, and windows for air circulation. One of the niches outside contains a bench to sit and read or relax.
