Spiritual elegance concealing functionTraditional Sunroom, Philadelphia

The challenge was to create a sophisticated conservatory, hosting an array of technical functions, yet providing a real connection to the outdoors. A self-sustaining koi pond, motorized windows and shades, fire suppression system, radiant heating and diverse lighting systems were some of the functions cloaked by the sapele wood frame. The simplicity of the Jerusalem stone flooring, bluestone pond coping and marine varnished sapele wood create an understated grace, thereby letting the symbols, shape and feel of the space set the spiritual stage.

    Beyond the garden. And if you really want to enjoy your fish throughout the day and night year-round, then simply move your koi pond indoors. Warning: You might need a larger-than-average home to pull this off.More: What to consider before building a backyard fish pond
