Created by Kengo Kuma & Associates, the Coeda House is a cafe based in Shizuoka, Japan, boasting a unique and innovative structure. The team stacked square cedar boards in order to create a tree-esque building, with the boards backed up by a carbon fiber rod, which will help it withstand earthquakes.

Discussing the project the firm explained that “due to the tree-like form, we were able to eliminate columns at the perimeter which would otherwise obscure the landscape.”

The 1,500 square foot pavilion space is situated on a cliffside, offering up sweeping views of the pacific ocean. Take a look through the gallery to see more of the Coeda House. In other more domestic news, our last HYPEBEAST Eats series, we looked at Koffee Mameya – the latest offshoot from Omotesando Koffee.
