schemata architects opens fourth blue bottle café in tokyo

 

blue bottle coffee continues its expansion in japan with its fourth store opened in the roppongi neighborhood in tokyo. designed by jo nagasaka of schemata architects, the branch can be found in a secluded public plaza located away from the busy avenue.

the interior continues a similar aesthetic to the other smaller blue bottle coffee stores. schemata architects‘ design is based on the concept of creating a quiet insertion which embraces its environment. the plywood-wrapped interior with concrete floors features simple layout with a bar counter area and seating for customers. the glass façade and entrance faces onto the green-filled plaza and invites views and light inside. in addition, the surrounding walls have been constructed with a repetition of plywood walls and doors, which simultaneously serve as storage space.
