Wales Residence

Keiji Asakura brings the outdoors inside of this Houston residence with a series of ‘rooms’ designed in a minimalist style representing various Zen ideals. The water that flows down the granite water wall, sculpted by Jesus Morales, is symbolically continued in the interior courtyard’s carefully selected river stone and planting beds which create more ‘water’. A true Japanese Zen garden is best depicted by ‘dry’ water, this theme is continued in the front garden which flows with undulating mounds of selected plant materials and rocks, even the driveway is complemented to represent a river bed.
