LD_design0828 / Teahouse


With the development of society, we seem to be moving away from the traditional way of life which our ancestors have lived for thousands of years. However, many times, electronic products and Internet make our desire to return to the traditional life even stronger. Taking this as the starting point, W designed our work – Hidden-Bamboo House Tearoom.
The inspiration comes from the doorway of traditional Chinese garden. In our mind, the Chinese doorway is a strong symbol of traditional Chinese flavor. We hope that through the design of doorway and traditional decorative patterns we can convey the unique Zen of traditional Chinese style.
