Amazon Teas Corporate Interiors

KWA Architects as Architects

Amazon teas, the owners of the celebrated international tea brand “English Tea Shop” needed a complete redesign of their corporate offices in Colombo.


The design was inspired by the dynamism and youthfulness of the people and their brand. As a tightly knit group of mostly under forties making waves in a centuries old industry,the client required an interior that can inspire their team while projecting their look of the art of tea making and their brand promise of organically harvested tea and value from tip to cup.


The interior attempted to project out this personality in visual and spatial form. Colour schemes, textures and lighting has been carefully designed to optimize the comfort and work efficiency for the team and encourage interaction and visual connections throughout the spaces.


The interior was mainly designed incorporating colours,textures and aroma of herbs and spices which they use to flavour the tea brands. The mini tea bar at the lobby was specially designed incorporating a herbs & spice display into the counter top and rack, which gives an indigenous fragrance at the entrance.


Natural light floods the entrance staircase through a framed glass façade. The feature drop down ceiling at the board room,is a tea leaf made using hammered copper plates which allows an interesting ambience to the space. Local materials and local craftsmanship were used to complete the project.
