‘at night,’ explains head architect at mori no terrace, ‘the form of black appearance disappears, and the structure illuminated with the upper light emerges and stands out as an icon for users.’ the furniture featured throughout the café uses contrasting red and green tones in order to create a certain characteristic. the campground is a facility used by both men and women from all ages, where the timber-clad café can be enjoyed by everyone.
