telling the story of time, the ‘hengyang teahouse’ is a three-storey flagship establishment along hengyang road in taipei, taiwan by 
taiwanese firm smith&hsu. within an old building, the venue seats 109 diners while offering the brand’s entire collection of teas and products.
contrasting the historical home, the contemporary interior accommodates the fashion of tea drinking as a cultural point of reference.
