Ordering, tea making and picking up the drinks are all finished in the terrazzo rectangular bar, the aisles around it are the main activity spaces for customers. The one-way design guides customers to complete the process of consumption, meanwhile experiencing the social lightness. The inclined gray concrete wall and ceiling formed invisible thrust under the beam of light, pushing forward customers to walk through the aisles.
