Taiyuan Botanical Garden - Restaurant/ Tea House
The Restaurant is designed in resemblance to the Chinese Traditional Temples, evoking the wooden structures as its design premise. After a few studies trying to potentiate the structure into a contemporary and reasonable basis, a shifted grid made from stacked timber beams was established as the main conductor of a very attractive and atmospheric space. Incorporated into the landscape, for one side, the restaurants geometry detaches itself from it, extending opening up to the lake.
