The teahouse is located in a roof garden in Vancouver. Its roof is supported by four slender steel columns. The 10-square meter room is enclosed by glass and flexible partitions instead of solid walls.

The floor continues out forming outdoor corridor around the room, out of which is a tea garden. Wandering in the garden on the stone slabs, it takes people to a haven from the outside world.

Removing the tatami in the middle of the teahouse, people could open the floor slab and put in their feet to seat around the table, organizing a meeting or other events.
