A Cuban laurel tree runs through it.
An oasis/classroom for a meditation teacher was the focus of our design in this 1940s hip-roof bungalow. MGB was commissioned to create a zendo (meditation room) and uniquely spirited façade for one of Lido Beach’s oldest properties.
The design by Claude Armstrong of Armstrong + Cohen Architecture created a contrast to the home’s original form, transforming the entry into a playful and inspiring space.
The zendo features clerestory windows and sustainable cork flooring, with the entry showcasing and protecting a cherished Cuban laurel tree—the homeowner’s most prized landscape element.
