The Kengo Kuma Japanese Tea House on the 19th floor of Shaw Tower in Vancouver, Canada is a modern interpretation of the traditional Japanese teahouse. The small wooden structure is perched on the roof of the tower, offering stunning views of the city and the bay.

The teahouse is made of cedar and other natural materials, and its design is simple and elegant. The exterior features a low-slung overhanging roof and sliding glass walls. The interior is a single room with a central table that can be raised or lowered to accommodate different activities, such as tea ceremonies, meditation, or simply enjoying the view.

The teahouse is surrounded by a stone garden, which helps to create a sense of peace and tranquility. Visitors to the teahouse can take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life and experience the traditional Japanese tea ceremony in a truly unique setting.

Here are some additional details about the teahouse
