Via @archdaily, a modern teahouse in Silicon Valley, CA where one can "simply retreat into nature... under a grove of large California Live Oak trees."

"Each tea house is designed as a transparent steel and glass pavilion, hovering like a lantern over the natural landscape. Cast-in-place concrete core elements anchor the pavilions, supporting steel channel rim joists, which cantilever beyond the cores to support the floor and roof planes. With its minimal footprint, the design treads lightly on the land, minimizing grading and preserving the delicate root systems of the native oaks." More at Swatt | Miers Architects.
