The Architecture and Design Behind the Blue Bottle Coffee Cafe

Consistently the subject of renovation projects, the cafe’s latest look, designed by Schemata architects, has been injected with contemporary Japanese aesthetics, evident in the newly designed site in Nakameguro, Japan.


To provide a degree of natural textures and warmth to the otherwise industrial space, refined plywood and particle board have been used by the design team. The planes are broken up with glass flooring and living flora. 


Highly geometric patterns appear throughout the cafe, further shifting this cafe from the look of your traditional coffee shop.
