keisuke hatakenaka architects studio has divided the tea shop in three separate zones: the seating area; the kitchen; and the storage space where tea leaves are stored at a specific temperature. the seating area can be completely opened up to the street in front due to the polycarbonate sliding screens, which can be easily adjusted depending on the desired level of privacy. the other side of the corner building features a rotating window and an open counter for take-away customers.keisuke hatakenaka clads tokyo tea shop in translucent polycarbonate screens

 

 

the japanese studio has utilized the existing eaves, tend and shutter, adding only the budget-friendly polycarbonate screens. in order to reduce the cost of construction, each step of the project was designed to be completed separately by itself, while the owner participated in the construction process. the interior of the tea shop features existing wooden furniture from the previous store, which are complemented by raw concrete on the walls and ceiling.keisuke hatakenaka clads tokyo tea shop in translucent polycarbonate screens keisuke hatakenaka clads tokyo tea shop in translucent polycarbonate screens
