Feeling like in the famous mountain resorts where the immortal Taoists live in


Interior  /  Completed

Cave paradise, it was from Taoist language of our central plains, it refers to the famous mountain resorts where the immortal Taoists live in. There are ten big caves, thirty-six small caves and seventy-two blessed lands.The "Only Henan" of Jianye group reconstruct the rammed earth cave style of the ancient central plains. We also wish to follow the trend and create a modern tea space which in full of cave paradise for the local fashion tea brand "Juan Tea". In the tea space, we created a big cave and four small caves. Under the big cave, we dug 50 centimetre to form a blessed land, which is also the inner courtyard and the meditation area of the whole space. People come into the cave, find the place, they will feel cool and refreshing in the moment, and the atmosphere will be suddenly quiet as well. Five caves are intertwined. Starting from the entrance, the bar serving tea drinks is inspired by one of the four great inventions of the Central Plains and the Northern Song Dynasty, "movable type printing". An uncarved "movable type printing template" bar is abstractly extended. We hope that the future can continue, in these reserved side templates of the bar, movable type carvings about the story of "The Emotion Tea" are injected. The idea of three Lamps comes from Henan wheat harvesters. There are two small caves nearby, each hanging a moon lamp, one is rising, the other is falling. It is a metaphor for the traditional Chinese lunar calendar that has been formulated by the cycle of the moon since ancient times. The moon gradually changes from faintly to a full moon, and then slowly disappears until it disappears. At this time, it is called a month, so it is also called a lunar calendar. These are all deep metaphors of the history of our ancestors and us living together with heaven and food for thousands of years on this land. Enter the circular corridor, the winding path leads to the secluded, and the scenery changes. Every time you take dozens of steps, there is a small niche, and a fire is built in the niche. At the corner, we enter the big cave sky. Here is our inner courtyard meditation place. There is a well in the center. People can't help but move. Suddenly, it turns out that everything in the world, everything follows the alternation of cold and warm, the balance of yin and yang, and the Taoist health regimen can be achieved. This is the dual experience of the spirit and the body that the "Emotion Tea" and the space hope to convey to the people.
