What Houzz contributors are saying:

Melissa Alvarado Sierra added this to Zen Gardens: Serene Outdoor Spaces
Let your Zen garden shine through your home with this clever design idea created by Urban Earth Design. This window inset adds light and dimension to the interior design while letting the relaxing aura of a Zen garden travel indoors.
Josh McCullar | SMBW added this to Great Compositions: The Language of Walls
An inset glass box is used here to capture the reflected light of an outdoor Zen garden and to bring it indoors along the floor. The wall becomes a glowing prism of light during the day, and a glowing alcove as seen from the outside at night. Simply beautiful.
Lisa Frederick added this to Discover the Power of Prisms
This is one of the most innovative, striking architectural features I've seen in a long time. A prismatic glass box throws shards of light across the floor, and its reflectivity creates the illusion that the exterior contents are inside the space.
