Curving pale wooden furnishings and soft pink, green and blue tones decorate this tea shop in New York City. Spiritea is a bar that serves herbal and caffeinated tea in New York’s Ukranian Village.

The decor features a muted palette comprising a dusty rose ceiling, cream walls and light tone
site-cast terrazzo floors, alongside upholstered seating in soft green and blue fabrics.

The studio renovated a 167-square- metre corner storefront property defined by large windows to create the open-plan space where ordering, preparing and enjoying tea happen all together.

To emphasise the importance of tea making, the shop is arranged around a curved white marble counter where tea is prepared and served. This volume features a prominent rounded edge and is positioned underneath a rounded built-in on the ceiling.

Spiritea was also designed around the restrictions of it being inside a preserved landmark
building. The storefront retains much of the original structure and historic details, including the white pillars inside and exterior details painted black.
