Starbucks, a Seattle coffee brand with humble beginnings, has been making significant strides as of late to break creative boundaries with its architectural advances and build-outs. Having recently pulled the curtain on an impressive Starbucks Fukuoka by Kengo Kuma, the latest concept store develops out of Amsterdam and is being touted under the moniker, “The Bank.” Designed under the direction of its Dutch-born Concept Store Design Director, Liz Muller, The Bank boasts a less-than-modest floor plan that spans 4,500 square feet and is made from a range of locally-sourced and sustainable materials. Gathering its name from the former historic bank vault, the interior of the shop serves as a testing ground for the coffee giant to test out new brews, blends and concoctions within an equally as experimental environment.
