NEPAL TEAHOUSE
Phortse, Nepal

Denizen Works have been asked to design a new teahouse in the farming of village of Phortse in Nepal. The accommodation brief asks for cellular sleeping quarters, a dining hall, showers and a meditation centre.

Phortse sits on a south facing slope in Sagarmatha National Park.

Like much of Nepal, Phortse was effected by the major earthquake in April 2015. We have been asked to design a building that is easy to construct and will withstand future earthquakes in the area.

Area: 350m²  ・  Budget: NA  ・  Completion: Winter 2017

Client: Little Sherpa Foundation
