So this is a rather interesting story, the owner sleeps on a yoga mat, the site, a former meth lab. I don’t have a clue why you would sleep on concrete with only a yoga mat, but that’s what the owner wanted when he described what he was looking for:
Imagine for a moment you’re an architect. You’ve got a client – a really nice guy – who tells you he sleeps on a yoga mat on the floor. And he wants a home that is so stripped of ornament that, to some eyes, it will seem stark and cold. Also, he’s a very private person who wants a place of quiet solitude, but located in a dense urban neighborhood.
Interesting proposition for an architect, but I really like the results!
