Araksa Tea House
by Simple Architecture

Simple Architecture

Araksa Tea Garden is situated on the foothills of the rich forest of Mae Tang, Thailand. This boutique tea garden produces high quality organic tea.

The site is one of the oldest tea gardens in Thailand. Undisturbed for over 15 years until its new ownership, the tea plants have not been exposed to chemical pesticides or fertilisers.
The goal was to design a new Tea House using sustainable and locally available material and embed the building into its natural habitat of the Tea Garden. The whole construction process took almost two years and the building was opened in late 2019.


This project has been longlisted in the sustainable building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
