a south korean suburb is home to the dreamy camera cafe, a two-storey rectangular coffee shop modeled in the shape of a vintage rolleiflex twin lens camera. the hot red construction is formed as a near-perfect recreation of the classic photographic device, mimicking its shutter buttons and focus wheel in large scale. the set of glass lenses double as vast rotund windows, which visitors can sit near and enjoy views of the surrounding landscape. within the cafe, coffee and food is served and photography-themed design details feature throughout: a toilet paper roll is shaped like a film reel and black and white negatives are scattered on tables.
