Omotesando / Cafe

The three-dimensional wooden lattice of Japanese cypress covering the facade of this building was created using traditional wooden construction techniques. The building houses a Taiwanese pineapple cake shop, and the overall form evokes the image of a bamboo basket. Completed in 2014, it is the work of architect Kengo Kuma, who was also responsible for the nearby Nezu Museum.

Minato-ku, Minami-Aoyama 3-10-20.
