Sanctum is a privately commissioned water feature produced in 2004 to create a meditative view from the interior living space of the client’s home and instill a sense of privacy and sanctuary.

The space is enclosed by privacy screens that cast delicate shadows moving with the passing of the day.

Water bubbles up from the silvered bowl of a weighty concrete block that floats serenely above a bed of pebbles, making a soothing sound as it falls onto the stones beneath.

At night, concealed LEDs reveal themselves as stars reflected on the gently moving water.
