Another tea house design although in a very basic break down. I can use this as a reference when developing my own buildings for the background of my animation. This is a more front based view of one also so I can get a closer look at some of the details during the development process.
A Serene Asian-Inspired Garden—Japanese shoji screens traditionally are made from translucent rice paper, but the owners chose a durable, light-penetrating fabric that will prevail in harsh weather. It allows filtered light without sacrificing privacy. The floor is salvaged pine planks from a park ranger’s mountain cabin, and a round window brings in the garden even when the doors are closed.
