A wooden lightweight structure evokes the symbolism of traditional tearooms

‘Presented work shows the tea-selling shop – commercial unit no.7 in the historic Prague passage, at present called Broadway. The default original space itself is quite narrow with ragged side walls around, but it has a wonderful central skylight – the round shaped glass vault. For us this element determines the whole space orientation and hierarchy, so the interior concept is based on it´s fundamental and inspiring effect. Newly embedded wooden structure follows this centerpiece and creates the new order, giving the logic and harmony to the room, and separating it from the background facilities. The structure grid not only defines the new space morphology, but solves the original dissected walls as well as the electro sockets, HVAC and other technical elements by hiding it. Wooden lightweight structure should evoke the symbolism of traditional tearooms and create a comfortable “zen” environment for tasting tea – the place for customers to enjoy the magic moment feelings.’ – studio pha
