Uncle Balbas Tea Shop: A Scandinavian Interior Design

3/27/2020



It was another day for me when I received a call from Ana, she has this sweet voice and I could also tell that she was a foreigner asking for us to meet with her in a week's time. We scheduled and met for the first time on-site together with the contractor at that time. 

She was a Taiwanese nationality with Chinese business partners as-well. She is younger than me and her partners and I were of the same age group. We discussed what they intend to see and what their plans for the shop which I took all the notes of it for our proposal for the following week including their deadline. By the time we had proposed, we immediately hit off in starting the project. All revisions was done while demolishing just to meet the required deadline.



What's good about them is that they come prepared on the look that they wanted to achieve and since they kept reminding me that the space must be something that people would remember.
  1. Scandinavian with full of white
  2. To add a brickwall
  3. Utilize a space for their kitchen and their workspace area
  4. Instagrammable in all areas that the customer can see


This is the focal point of the Uncle Balbas Tea Shop. In this area, this has become the immediate visual that a customer would see. A mural work and a man-made brick wall with a grass wall and muhuka floor tiles. Since we could not take out the concrete platform was originally planned, we made sure that this will become the focal point and lounging space for people who wanted to gather around and have fun.





The owners wanted an instagrammable area wherein they wanted everything is occupied without being far from one's theme. All sides of the wall have become a wall accentuated with a cohesive design applying different textures and elements. The main dining or cafe area became an immediate separate entity that I choose to have a 3D wall in a chevron design matching the colors of the furniture and have the wall that would carry on the design theme.




The look of the counter where the transaction happens has a pendant light that adds a touch of the cafe, fronting the dining are, Still matched with the furniture itself. Behind it are the equipment for the tea which makes their work a lot easier.



A Wall sticker was applied in both walls to pair with the striking solid materials as seen on the otherside of the wall. Making sure that there is no blank wall still making sure that it is still instagrammable. It was supposed to have a mural but we have to utilize the space of making use of the all stickers which came in very handy and getting the results. Glad that liked the results.
