The guest comes slowly from the outside world into the small, intimate inside world that is the reflection space in Maennedorf. This is a journey unto itself. Flowing bridges lead into a meditative space, then back out into the countryside on a sunny, shielded gravel yard. The house has no fixed borders. The space transitions almost unnoticeably between open and protected, allowing thoughts to flow freely.
