Starbucks Coffee at Dazaifu Tenman-gū

Architects Kengo Kuma and Associates have installed a Starbucks coffee shop on the approach to a Shinto shrine in Dazaifu, Japan.

Over 2000 wooden batons line the interior of the shop, creating a diagonally woven lattice that spikes out beyond the recessed glass facade.

Signage for the shop nestles amongst the beams, while a strip of planted reeds marks the entrance.
