Due to the narrow space of the project, the designer hopes that everyone can experience the unique sense of space rhythm of Chinese style in the modern minimalist frame. The overall space frame enters the second floor public space through the staircase on the first floor, and then enters the small space to shrink and then shrink the rhythm, which has evolved to get rid of fusiness and decoration.

The style of the three tea art spaces is also slightly different. The japanese-tibetan style is modern, which is also a combination of the habits and sense of belonging of the consumer groups to carry out a positive integration and enhance the sense of experience.
