American coffee chain Blue Bottle Coffee has opened two outposts in Tokyo designed by Schemata Architects. The first location is based in a reworked storage building, encompassing a roastery, cafe, offices, barista training area as well as a pastry factory located in the Kiyosumi-Shirakawa area. The space has been renovated to become a continuous and open space, with large glass doors and screens installed for transparency among everyone. A skylight was also installed to maximize the amount of natural lighting in the space, on top of indoor greenery. With an open plan concept emphasizing simplicity and heavy on its use of wood and steel throughout, the space maintains its industrial beginnings updated for modern Tokyo. The second location is a cafe located near the Omotesando station in the trendy Aoyama area, featuring much of the same industrial aesthetic. Surrounded by trees and slightly tucked away from the busier parts of the neighborhood, the coffee shop is spacious and well-lit, with an open kitchen and ample seating. Check out the photos above.
