A PEACEFUL RETREAT IN SHANGHAI

In Shanghai, China, there is a space that promotes contact with Nature, "The Tea House" with the reputable Atelier Deshaus signature. A unique retreat, where the past and modernity harmoniously coexist.

A Shanghai tour, in the Popular Republic of China, should include a visit to the "Tea House", so that you can get in touch with the local culture. There are spaces with history, but there are also more modern ones. The "Tea House" is the place to taste tea and meditate in perfect harmony with the "mother Nature".

The architects Liu Yichun and Chen Yifeng, from Atelier Deshaus, sign up for "The Tea House" project. Light and vegetation worked as a starting point for the construction of a markedly quiet space that has a paulownia tree as central figure. The architects, thus, respected nature and created in function of the outside garden. «This backyard functions as an outdoor room complementary to the "Tea House"», the architects explained. «And the thick trunk of the paulownia, almost 90 centimetres in diameter, also becomes a lively actor of the space», they added.

The "Tea House" is located next to the offices of a fashion brand which can be accessed by stairs. The entrance to the garden is made by an access at the opposite end of the "Tea House" that is in the northwest corner, reason why it is necessary to walk through stones, apparently irregular, that were strategically arranged to show that there is serenity and nature.

The "Tea House" space is in L format and stands out for the fluidity between interior and exterior. It was built using a steel structure with columns and beams that provide a clear and transparent environment. The light was highly valued and is presente in the entire building due to large glass windows. The "Tea House" is, thus, illuminated by natural light that gives it life and makes it wider.

Having tea inside this house is to feel in perfect contact with the rich landscape. The interior furniture is in wood, in a tone that blends in perfectly with black finishes of doors and windows, as well as with the white painted ceiling. If the aim is to taste tea outdoors, it is possible to sit on a bench that, suspended, seems to hover on the ground.

Atelier Deshaus was founded in 2001, in Shanghai, by Liu Yichun. The works it has developed have earned several international distinctions. Previous projects highlighted, for example, the "Long Museum West Bund", located on the bank of the Huangpu River, and the "Spiral Art Gallery" located in Jiading, on the surroundings of Shanghai.
