DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Heytea DP3 - Hills Beyond

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Tea Shop

INSPIRATION:
In the traditional tea drinking spaces, distributed seating provides a way for people to communicate privately. The Heytea Daydreamer project, as a series of presentations, takes aim at exploring the distances between people in reality for our new era and another way of "siting down.” Heytea is not only a tea shop that satisfies your appetite, but also represents a new way of socialising in a space.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Hills beyond is Heytea’s third store of the DP (Daydreaming Project) Series. Continued with the design concept of the previous two, the space is carried out experimentally in order to explore the way how people gather and scatter in the shop. Differing from the ordinary tea shops with seats spread out, the long tea table that goes through the whole space makes the aggregation of the customers possible.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Differ from the traditional tea shop mode, it creates new distances between different user's group, which generates new ways of social communication between people.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in December 2017 and completed in August 2018. The location of this project is in 104, No. 5, Xiancun Road, Tianhe District,Guangzhou,China.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Similar to last point, We think of using new material to create a scenario of tradition, which is also the philosophy of Heytea. The use of mirror of the third shop is a flat silver-plated mirror panel. In this unique space, the “hills” of the table and the ceiling form a complete succession of endlessly rising peaks- an oriental image of “mounts beyond mounts.” The structures that represent the layering hills in the cloud world, which is a classical scene in the Chinese traditional ink-and-wash paintings, upheave irregularly on the top of the table, and meanwhile, divide the tea drinkers into various sections functionally. With the white, curved and mountain-like ceiling above, it seems like, with thhe help of imagination, that customers are placed in the scenario created in the renowned ancient painting, Spring Mountain and Auspicious Pines, by Fu Mi of Song Dynasty: in the valleys teemed with cloud and mist and mountains shadowed by the greens, a sip of tea is taken on each seat.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The space is rather High and short in depth: Length18m x Width 8m x Height 8m. Exclude the Back of House area, there is only around 12m x 8m left for bar and seating area. After being mirrored, the “hills” of the table and the ceiling form a complete succession of endlessly rising peaks- an oriental image of “mounts beyond mounts.” The mirror creates continuity of the hill scenario and also make the space much bigger. The ceiling was made by curved aluminium panel which was customized in the factory. followed with a LED light stripe. It creates a dome space which makes people feel like they are drinking underneath a mountain. The table is aimed to generate different distance and users group. We used Engineered stone which could have no gap but also easy for cleaning. The floor is customised terrazzo implant with different size of jade stone, The texture of the terrazzo balance the atmosphere of the space.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Distance affects the way of communication Dr. Edward Hall, an American anthropologist who divides four different types of distances from interpersonal relationships, and the renowned socialist Erving Goffman defined “to meet” as "the constant mutual attention of people in public places." Human beings are natural social animals and supposed to live in different sizes and types of groups, and the social group is constructed by the relationship, which is constituted by the relativity of the individual’s position. In this special structure, the individual activity will influence the whole structure, on the other hand the whole structure also affects and restricts the individual's activity. In the social space, at the same time, the positions of similar individuals who share similar characters, interests and practical activities are also close. A small-scale space makes people feel close to each other, however a large-scale space has greater inclusiveness and possibility. The ways of communication produced by different distances between people are respective, and the relationship between distance and human activities is also ubiquitous.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to balance the need of modern and tradition. This DP (daydreamer project) series of heytea is to explore the new way of communication in this era - which was influenced by internet so much; but in the same while, to also create a scenario of Drinking Chinese tea which could make people rethink of our tradition. -new way of communication In nowadays, social space is very limited. Internet makes people's communication become more convenient, but also scattered people's distance. Our design is aim to explore new way of communication for nowadays young people. Differing from the ordinary tea shops with seats spread out, the long tea table that goes through the whole space makes the aggregation of the customers possible. -hill beyond Functionally, The hills on the table divide the tea drinkers into various of groups. additionally, the form represent a classic scene in the Chinese traditional ink-and-wash paintings. which also echoes the white, curved and mountain-like ceiling above. This scenario very much fit the keywords of heytea: cool, inspiration and zen.
