TeaHouse-East-Aspect-web  Teahouse Joinery 1 clear

A contemporary reworking of the traditional Zen Teahouse to allow a ‘camp’ on a pristine wilderness site near Hobart Tasmania.

Constructed using a modified traditional joinery technique prtefabricated in our workshops and hand carried to the site.  The posts are spliced onto local field stones and the joinery assembled by the architect, client and friends.

Amato external storm doors enclose sliding shoji panels made from twin skinned ultra light Dacron spinnacher sailcloth.  Tatami mats line the floor and a Tokonomas display highlighted by a round moon window form the room.
