FLOATING ROOF CAFE


CAFETERIA IN SUBURBIA TOKYO



Client : Confidential Client
Location : Suburbia of Tokyo, Japan
Program : Cafeteria
Plot Area : 1100 sqm

Floor Area : 230 sqm

Year : 2019
Status : Design Proposal



This is our entry for a design competition for the redevelopment of a series of coffee shops throughout Japan.


Under a large roof that looks like a floating leaf of paper, not unlike the paper filter used in making coffee, and forms the basis for this design.
As the brief called for a nation-wide implementation, we suggest slightly different variations in the shapes of this roof to give each pavilion its own identity.

The interior is arranged around a central courtyard, in which a garden will be planted featuring plants specifically to the locality of the coffee shop.
