Stoney Creek, CT  USA  –  Naomi Darling Architecture

Photography by Sean Kernan

This stunning, minimalist teahouse is in Stoney Creek, Connecticut.  Designed by architect Naomi Darling, it features local and recycled materials to achieve a simple elegance. The stone came from a local quarry, while bamboo was harvested on-site.  The roof is made of recycled metal. “Tea, my dear?”
