when designing the interiors of the ‘odette team room and pâtisserie‘ in warsaw, poznan-based UGO architecture wanted to add a characteristic and recognizable element. for this, they selected a plant motif wallpaper, featuring banana tree leaves, accompanied by a rosewood counter, veneered tables, and chairs that resemble twig weaves. the plant patterns found around the space bring harmony and the gentleness only nature can provide into the interior. the tea room is located in the cosmopolitan, a skyscraper in warsaw’s city center.

the program was divided into two different areas: the main one, encompassed by the distinctive wallpaper, contains the display counter and four tables where visitors sit and consume biscuits with one of the 100 tea types from all over the world. all of this is done while marveling at the historical church in grzybowski square. the second area, know as the red room, is used for storing the amenities. the stone flooring reflects the material used in the square in front of the building, erasing the border between interior and exterior.
