The Hualien Bay Mall Starbucks has been designed by Japan-based architect Kengo Kuma as a new location for the coffee brand that is located in Taiwan and sure to offer a distinctly unorthodox appearance amidst surrounding structures.
The cafe is made using a total of 29 shipping containers that work to offer a total of 3,444 square feet of retail and seating space that is spread over two floors. The containers have all been reinforced, modified and painted to give them a stylish aesthetic that doesn't skimp when it comes to ample area for the brand to operate.
The Hualien Bay Mall Starbucks comes as the brands 45th example of a shipping container cafe that speaks to its penchant for stressing sustainability in architectural terms.
