Paragon Tea Room

The visual concept for the space is inspired by the Zen qualities of tea culture - warm, natural earth tones are conveyed with the use of bamboo plywood, juxtaposed with dark green tile against a black backdrop. These notes are balanced with contemporary cues such as white quartz and copper.

This design context was particular in that we were working to build a space existing within another. It was important to allude to the neighbouring café by applying the same dimensional rules so to keep the same datum lines along the interior space. For contrast, we used different materials and shapes.
