This inspiring Chinese home, the Tea House, was completed by Archi-Union Architects in the backyard of the studio's offices in Shanghai.

The project mission was to embody harmony by integrating enclosure and openness, delightful living spaces and logical construction. An interesting feature of the house is the embedded living tree, which protrudes past a balcony.

The Tea House is divided in three parts: “A covered public area is formed towards the open space with the pool, with an enclosed tea house at ground level and library on the first floor where a small triangular balcony extends around the existing tree“.
