Outline

Being mindful and live in the now is my ideal for teahouses in Taiwan.Excessive material and decorations would compromise the visual and quality of the space,diluting the essence of the space.We choose humble room as the theme for the space.All materials we use follow the idea of-tea can be appreciated in different forms,but always in calm,locally accessible,user friendly and sourced from nature.

Evaluation

We were impressed by the way in which the designers have used natural materials to incorporate light and air into this compact space, creating a very attractive place for the owner—a devotee of tea culture since childhood—to share Taiwanese tea culture and to produce and sell tea. One can imagine the aroma of tea infusing the whole building as it floats up the spiral staircase in the atrium that serves as a central light well. A very beautiful space has been formed by the exquisite balance between all the elements: the diverse rendering of the plasterwork on the walls, the texture of wood, the sharp iron features, and the soft fabrics.
