'The Kafe' is a plant-covered cafe in 'The Yard Shopping Mall' in Hanoi, Vietnam -- a mall that used to be a decrepit industrial building and was transformed into a shopping space.

The Kafe is an open space with plenty of seating and fresh food -- but its most interesting feature is the fact that it is completely covered in greenery. The space has large plants that line dividers between tables as well as small planters hanging on the ceiling, while its outdoor patio was designed around large trees in order to preserve them. The use of natural vegetation in stores and restaurants is an excellent way to decorate a space without spending too much money.
