Project Description

Before the renovation of the tea house, there were some problems, such as opacity, closure, and old buildings. After communicating with the owner and understanding and analyzing the tea room, the designer hopes to break the tradition while preserving it, so as to achieve the symbiosis of culture and architecture. Since the old shops facing the street need privacy, and having an elegant and simple tea house is what every tea lover wants, the design of the tea room naturally focuses on the creation of artistic conception.
The tea house is based on dark colors such as blue, gray, and brown. The design is simple and full of details. It uses local rough stone, tough iron and blue wood products, and is matched with pure cotton and linen cloth bag. The cold and warm complement each other, forming a quiet and private space. The introduction of green plants adds a touch of garden style to the box, and also highlights the unique tropical rain forest of Xishuangbanna.
In order to highlight the respect for the local humanities and natural environment, the designer introduces the local traditional architectural pattern and vegetation courtyard into the interior.
