Opened in May in the Welsh countryside of Llanbister, The Life House is the latest addition to the string of contemporary homestays by British company Living Architecture.
Kitchen needs come courtesy of
Miele and David Mellor-designed
appliances and equipment.
The three-bedroom bungalow is made for the serious zen-seeker – complete with a Contemplation Chamber to chill out. Designed by renowned architect John Pawson, its austere Nehera-esque aesthetic takes cues from Japanese homes and Benedictine monastery cloisters, and is kitted out in minimalist furnishings such as Miele kitchen appliances and Pawson-designed crockery.
Large windows around The Life House offers
sweeping views of the Welsh countryside.
