This Might Be The Coolest Starbucks In The World
This Starbucks in Fukuoka, Japan fuses quirky architecture with a global brand
We at The Sitch love coffee, so we are featuring a unique coffee shop every day this week in honor of National Coffee Day, September 29. In Fukuoka, Japan there is a coffee shop that features a unique weaved wood interior.
The Starbucks was designed by Kengo Kuma, who is a world renowned architect. Given that the coffee shop is in the same neighborhood as the Dazaifu Tenmangu temple and other similar buildings, the Starbucks’ design was “aimed to make a structure that harmonizes with such townscape, using a unique system of weaving thin woods diagonally.” The Starbucks consists of over 2,000 pieces of wood and it envelopes the entire interior of the cafe.
We would love to spend a day in this breathtaking Starbucks writing for The Sitch. Would you visit this cafe in Japan? Let us know in the comments section below and be sure to subscribe to The Sitch for more coffee news and other entertaining reads.
