IDIN ARCHITECTS: 自2015年第一家翠峰茶馆开业以来，翠峰种植园吸引了众多游客前来参观，成为清莱最著名的旅游景点之一。由于第一间咖啡馆客流量过大，为满足需要，才成立了第二间翠峰茶馆。
IDIN ARCHITECTS: Since the first Choui Fong Tea Cafe began operation in 2015, Choui Fong plantation has gained plenty of tourists’attention and became one of the most famous tourist attractions in Chiang Rai. Due to such an excess of visitors in the first cafe, Choui Fong Tea Cafe 2 was established in order to serve the need.
The second phase is located on the plantation hill near the first cafe. The designers proposed the building floor to be in rectangular shape that allow most areas to have the view. Unlike the first cafe that the building was pushed down into the land allowing visitors to get the panoramic view on the top, the Choui Fong Tea Cafe 2 stands on the hill because of its massive usable area and to be aside of the existing factory.
The entrance hallway acts like the wind tunnel that the visitors may face the wind blow as a welcome greeting. During moving through this tunnel, the dim atmosphere is gradually brightened along the way to dining area. The materials of this recent project are harmonious with the first phase by using pinewood, steel, glass and, additionally, mountain stone. These materials represent Choui Fong’s philosophy of organic plantation.
The main concept of the design is to provide visitors with panoramic plantation view and close to the natural surroundings without inconveniences for elders and disabled people, thus the design should support these conditions simultaneously efficiently. To widen the scenery in the slope area, the dining area is split into several steps following the land contour. This allows all customers from every table to have the view with different eye level. Moreover, to prevent the dining area from heavy rain, the extended eaves is added to cover the dining area. Under the eaves, the ramp is provided surrounding the dining area, and this allows the wheelchair to access all platforms.
According to the owner’s requirements to have a large usable area in one storey building, so the floor plane has an enormous size which usually followed with the lack of light within the space. To solve the issue, instead of having a huge glass planes with exposed unpleasant joint and structure, the small scattering skylights are used. These skylights were designed to extrude in cone shape which benefit to diffuse the light sufficiently for the entire dining area as well as provide volume for the tree courtyard underneath. Externally, the skylight forms are covered with stone and arranged harmoniously with the surrounding mountains.

The project consists of a dining area with 250 seats, a large souvenir shop and the exhibition area where staffs demonstrate tea making and the histories are displayed. The significant concern in this project is the universal design because after the first cafe has been operated for years, it is found that family groups with elders are the major clients of the cafe.

Choui Fong Tea Cafe is one of the role model architecture that impulse the local economy and community, supporting Choui Fong Tea plantation become one of the top destinations in Chiang Rai province. The design basically derived from the analysis of the real usage happened in the first phase café, then all functions were interpreted into the program, and finally presented them through an architecture successfully. By this process, the project appears to have its own unique character which definitely explains the designer’s belief that an architecture is a solution of problem solving where the result should be unique, aesthetic and beneficial to people in better living.
