We wanted to make a space that conveys the brand's design philosophy, bringing natural, essential, modest and durable beauty as well as mixture of Sino and modern to the market. This part of the space was inspired by Sino pavilion and modern greenhouse.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The design seems like an pavilion inserted to the courtyard of the original campus canteen as the foundation of the tearoom. However the basic structure of its wall and roof is a glass greenhouse. The visual sense of pavilion was merely outlined by the wooden frame within the glass house. The glass ceiling is decorated with joists, which filter and softened the infiltrating nature lighting and make the inside atmosphere of the tearoom easy and graceful. Nearby the tearoom is the artifical landscape in the courtyard, which supplys nature sense to the tearoom through the windows. The inside is decorated with solid wood tea table, wardrobe and chair that are all designed by Suyab, in addition with plants they ultimately and vivdly convey the philosophy of the company.

This design is not a reserch orientated design but for comercial purpose. It is for ultimately representing the ideaology of the Suyab Design. This part of the showroom borrows concept from oriental pavilion and modern glass greenhouse.
The recycled wooden beams are very rare in the market, very uneasy to obtain enough amount of them. The designer and the staffs have to visit many markets one by one, sometimes construction sites to obtain these recycled woods. Besides, not every recycled wood could be applied, our staffs had to pick out woods with very close diameter so that we could avoid as many as cutting as we can, which was for preserving the visual effect of vintage on the recycled woods.
