Seeking escape from the corporate environment, the clients came to us with a simple desire—A house that had a Zen-like feeling when they came home from their busy executive jobs. A secluded 18-acre property comprised of native prairie and Ozark woodlands provided an ideal setting for such a challenge.Save this picture!© Aaron KimberlinSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Aaron KimberlinConcepts of Zen aesthetics inspired the Shibumi House. Specifically, the concepts of Shibumi and Wabi-Sabi. Shibumi—an ideal wherein objects and experiences exhibit in paradox -and all at once- the very best of everything and nothing: elegant simplicity.Save this picture!© Aaron KimberlinSave this picture!© Aaron KimberlinWabi-Sabi—an intuitive way of living that emphasizes finding beauty within the imperfections of life and accepting peacefully the natural cycle of growth and decay. The form of the house was also derived from Zen aesthetics as the proportioning system for both plan and elevation was generated from tatami aspect ratios and patterning.Save this picture!© Aaron KimberlinThe materiality of the project was kept very simple and honestly represented. The traditional shou sugi ban technique of charring cedar was used on the exterior to further express the design objectives.Save this picture!© Aaron KimberlinProject gallerySee allShow lessVestre Fjord Park / ADEPTSelected ProjectsDialogue Head Office / Blanchette ArchitectesSelected Projects Share Houses ArchDaily Save this picture!© Aaron Kimberlin+ 21Curated by Paula Pintos Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Shibumi House / Arkifex StudiosSave this projectSaveShibumi House / Arkifex Studios “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard 2017 CopyHouses•Strafford, United States Photographscenter_img United States “COPY” Shibumi House / Arkifex Studios Architects: Arkifex Studios Area Area of this architecture project Area:  3000 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Photographs:  Aaron Kimberlin Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Projects CopyAbout this officeArkifex StudiosOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookStraffordUnited StatesPublished on October 24, 2020Cite: “Shibumi House / Arkifex Studios” 24 Oct 2020.
