Industrial Design Ring House is Pure Zen

The Ring House & Atelier, by Marwan Zgheib, was the Platinum A’ Design Award Winner in the Architecture, Building and Structure Design Category for 2013 – 2014. Designed for a jeweler in the city of Riyadh, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia – it provides quiet zen-like space to inspire creativity. The house is designed to maximize flow and the outdoor space is substantial. The interior consists of a bedroom, a bathroom, a living room, a kitchen and an atelier (workshop). And outside – a lone symbolic tree and a water feature are the only adornments, yet the space is so calming. And while the exterior wall is a sphere and perfect circle – the interior living space is a rectangle. One might think this would conflict but in this case, it is pure harmony. The circular wall provides a womb-like atmosphere, a safe place where nothing can interrupt your thoughts. It would be the perfect place for anyone who creates – somewhere they could concentrate without interruption. We always find it so incredible when such minimalism can inspire so heartily. But such is the way of Zen.
