Gen sou en By Suzumori architects

This tea house, located in Boston and designed by Suzumori architects, is in perfect harmony with the Japanese tea culture, a drink that accompanies numerous ceremonies of this oriental civilization. Just like a ceremony and all the phases that compose it, even the design of this place needs extreme precision and accuracy.

Suzumori’s design borrows elements from the classic Machiya terraced houses, however, fits it in the context of Boston and the 21st century without losing the old world charm. As admitted by the study: the programmatic elements of the teahouse are set in circular forms in gentle ascension, whose clean lines are home to traditional Japanese architectural elements: tatami benches, horigotatsu (recessed seats), tea ceremony room and the central garden nakaniwa, where a tree and herbs grow under a circular hooded skylight.

Customers have a number of seating arrangements where they can choose to enjoy their tea. These include traditional mats in the tea ceremony room, complete with tatami. Each of these provisions maintains a symmetrical line that relaxes the eyes and makes the space relaxing. One of the most essential elements of the tea house is the courtyard, to which Suzumori alludes with the beautiful circular skylight that projects blurry sun rays on the central plant.
