A striking faux fireplace, seamlessly integrated into the joinery, creates an inviting atmosphere for clients and adds a touch of sophistication to the space. This feature serves as a focal point in the Zen Den, designed to instill a sense of warmth and gravitas, signaling to clients that they are in capable hands and fostering a sense of confidence and assurance.

Bookmatched stone, meticulously chosen by the architects, adorns the joinery, uniting functionality with aesthetics. Serving as a testament to craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail, the bookmatched stone creates a visually stunning focal point, elevating the Zen Den into a realm of refined elegance.

Beyond the sustainable approach taken with materials and furniture selections, including LED lighting, a key aspect of the Zen Den is its energy efficiency upgrade. This upgrade has been achieved by integrating a high-performance thermal envelope, invisible yet reflected in the space’s comfort, with little or no need for additional heating or cooling. The ceiling boasts a custom bulkhead containing 40mm Kingspan high-density insulative foamboard. This acoustic paneling not only enhances energy efficiency but also creates a better acoustic environment, further contributing to the Zen feeling of the space.
