Japanese: literally, enlightenment through meditation. Derived from Chinese, “Chan” roughly translatable to “quietude.”
Origin: Sanskrit “dhyana,” meaning meditation.

Zen is a philosophy of life that eschews the chaos of the outside world, emphasizing a perfect union of mind body and spirit through a direct meditative state.When I design a “Zen” space, I do so with the objective of walling out the chaos of the megalopolis to create a space conducive to peaceful meditation incorporating timeless natural elements, textures and colors.
