Recharge your Zen.

Located in Kyoto, Japan, Blue Bottle Coffee opens a Machiya-style cafe that designed by Schemata Architects. This cafe blends West Coast culture with the charm of the quaint locale which is restoration of a 100-year old Japanese tea house.

Original roof structure and clay walls is there to maintained the townhouse's characteristics, while other elements were rebuilt, such as the raised flooring, which was replaced with a pebbled ground that had the same height behind the counter and in the costumer area.

Unlike any other coffee shop that will ne noticed from miles away, this unique coffee shop is only marked by a single Blue Bottle logo. See the Blue Bottle Coffee Kyoto cafe above.
