Kengo Kuma Designs New Starbucks Store in the Southern Japanese city of Fukuoka

One of Japan’s leading and globally renowned, award winning architects, Kengo Kuma has designed a new Starbucks store that will open in the Southern Japanese city of Fukuoka. The store is currently under construction but is due to open in mid December.

The design is made up of a traditional timber framed structure with the facade of the building protruding out at different angles, similar to a tree’s branches. “A fusion of the traditional and contemporary and made up of natural materials” is how Kuma describes the approach to the design that looks like it will lend itself to the natural surroundings of the stores location in Dazaifu Shrine.
