Siegel & Strain Architects

Facilities for this remote Meditation Center include a circular Pagoda, separate Menís and Womenís Housing, a small Interview Room/ Dhamma Hall, and Bath Block.

The Architectural Program included using as many natural materials as possible, and incorporation of passive heating and cooling systems.† The Pagoda uses strawbale construction, while the housing minimizes wood use through optimum framing techniques.
