The Starbucks Tokyo by Kengo Kuma features a stunning design that showcases a multitude of overlapping wood elements. Fascinated by wooden blocks, architect Kuma’s design looks to simplistic materials that are transformed to make an awe-inspiring design.

A contemporary translation of traditional Japanese carpentry, this stunning structure aims to interact with its surrounding environment. Located in close relation to Dazaifu Tenmagu, the shrine of a Japanese deity, the cafe features eye-catching elements that are both aesthetic and structural.

Supporting the cafe’s ceiling, these scattered sticks serve as a dynamic focal point within the space while resembling the branches of a tree. Fusing culture and conscious design, the artful Starbucks Tokyo by Kengo Kuma dares to stand out amongst the crowd, presenting cafe goers with an unexpected take on classic branding.
