Serve my visitor tea as wine on a winter night, with water boiling on the bamboo stove; the same moonlight shines through my window, but looks somewhat different with plum flowers blooming.

Tea---Creates gatherings of people and culture.

This project is a space for tasting tea. The owner likes to invite friends over for tea during his free time, and thus used “tea” as inspiration, which creates “gatherings” and further “extends” the space. “Gathering” is the central idea of the space, in which the X axis links together spatial functions; the flexible screen can separate one space into many, or link together many subspaces.

The Y axis flexible screen creates different depths of view, and further pulls trees outdoors inside; along with Eastern tea pots and utensils, the entire space becomes one with the spirit of tea ceremony.

The space is filled with warm colors like the amber colored tea in your hands, lucid and lively. Western pithy lines are introduced into the Eastern atmosphere, and as Eastern and Western mix and interact, XY axes are clearly displayed for guests to freely roam through seemingly independent yet blended spaces.
