T’TEA: Redefining Modern Tea Culture
In response to modern life and the characteristics of contemporary society, modernist architecture has developed new forms that feature unique architectural designs. T’TEA is a super large composite space that treats tea-drinking as a serious matter, creating a modern trend model with a sense of ritual in life. Here, art, technology, and quality converge into the core value of T’TEA, rendering the cultural atmosphere of the city of Tianjin. The intention of the design is to create a pleasant and pioneering modern urban space where people can immerse themselves and touch the quality of life with all their heart.
Pleasure · Modern Inheritance
Unlike traditional teahouses, T’TEA has a modern design concept that organically integrates the function, space, and aesthetics of the building, endowing the Chinese tradition of “drinking tea” with a brand new connotation that stimulates pioneering thinking on the dialectical relationship between inheritance and innovation, static and vitality. This innovative approach stimulates emotional resonance, establishing a gentle touch to life and forming a warm and delicate, leisurely and unrestrained aesthetic feeling.
Quality of Life Technology Empowerment
T’TEA uses washed stones, stainless steel, and red bricks to create a light, elegant, and appropriate space, imitating the realm of comfort and wonder, and the ritual sense of life. The advanced intelligent light control and curtain control system takes care of everyone’s emotions, and the indoor color temperature changes quietly with the tide of time. The BOSE surround background music complements the 6x3m ultra-large P2.0 full-color high-definition LED screen, forming an excellent spatial echo.
Trendy and Interesting · IP Blessing
T’TEA advocates reconnecting people’s true emotions in a continuous and inclusive way. The wide and well-arranged space introduces Cubism into the building and presents it in a tidy and tidy way, bringing more connection and interaction, which can meet the multiple purposes of young people, including gathering, sharing and discussion. The original IP image of TOCOO Doku is undoubtedly a strong personalized and symbolic expression of young people. It collides with infinite vitality with avant-garde and innovative forms of expression, deconstructs and connects the current art trend, and not only conveys novelty but also is full of fashion.
Pioneer Thought New Form
T’TEA shows the thinking of architectural morphology and urban organization methods, and the application of new trends of thought, new materials, and new technologies in architecture, which fits the pioneering call of leading the trend. Architectural elements are organically and transparently combined to form a characteristic vocabulary system, which responds to new ways of existence with spatial texture and embodies a modern spirit of anti-structure, anti-boring, and anti-static.
T’TEA redefines modern tea culture with its innovative approach to tea-drinking. With its unique architectural design, advanced technology, and quality materials, T’TEA provides a comfortable and stylish space where people can enjoy the experience of drinking tea with friends. It advocates reconnecting people’s true emotions in a continuous and inclusive way, stimulating pioneering thinking on the dialectical relationship between inheritance and innovation, static and vitality. T’TEA is a unique space that offers more than just a cup of tea – it offers a multi-layered experience of modernism and cultural awareness.
