Starbucks installation by Kengo Kuma and Associates
Not your usual Starbucks?
Architects Kengo Kuma and Associates have installed a rather unusual Starbucks coffee shop on the approach to a Shinto shrine in Dazaifu, Japan.
Over 2000 wooden batons line the interior of the shop, creating a diagonally woven lattice that spikes out beyond the recessed glass facade.
Signage for the shop nestles amongst the beams, while a strip of planted reeds marks the entrance.
Photography is by Masao Nishikawa.
