The Minjiang River in Sichuan Province, is now the home of the Riverside Tea House, a beautiful, calm space by Chinese interior design architect Lin Kaixin.
Built for a local client who wanted a place ‘to drink tea with drinks in leisure time while relax myself when feel tired’. Lin Kaixin came up with the concept of playing a flute near the river and integrating with nature as closely as possible. Whilst taking oriental culture as a central focus of the building, he has created a free, open, natural and humane spiritual space. Shoji paper, vertical wooden slats and a grey architectural aesthetic create a calm balance with the natural landscape around it.
