Japanese Tea House and Cultural Centre - Delhi , Public Spaces-Others

The brief of the project was to build an all-wood structure, true to the refined traditions of Japanese Tea house, with a hint of Indian influence. The design aimed to find a common ground between the different cultural requirements that the brief posed - reconciling functions, site conditions and availability of materials and craftsmanship, with the proportion, aesthetics and essence of tea houses.

The key to the project was discovering the concept of wabi sabi, a key that has helped unlock the promise of many projects since. Wabi Sabi - finding beauty in the incomplete, imperfect, a philosophy that deeply influences Japanese aesthetic, notably traditional tea houses.

Some elements were imported like the shoji paper and tatami mats, the rest were built on site interpreting the original Tea House elements in terms of what was locally available.

The ‘outside’ needed to be equally engaging and intentional as the tea house itself. The landscape was planned as a series of journeys with pauses in pathways and playful elements in the greens.
