RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The overall aim was to preserve, elevate, sublimate the heritage of a local tea house called Chinar, that was on the site for over 60 years and very much part of the local social life. After consultation with many people, decision was made to create the ultimate expression of a tea house.To achieve this, a new larger building was planned to house not just tea but also food, drinks and music related to Asia, near and Far. Much research on location to understand the culture of tea houses in Central Asia, importance of tea as a social connector, local cultural legacy.

CHALLENGE:
See research notes above. The big challenge was to create something new and modern that would be commercially successful while elevating the concept of central Asian tea house (chaikhana) locally and for an international audience.
