Blue Bottle Coffee by Schemata Architects, Tokyo – Japan

December 8th, 2016 by retail design blog


Few outside of Tokyo may have heard of Shinagawa Railway Station, but it’s of the Japanese capital’s major transport hubs. As such, it generates a lot of foot traffic, and similarly to other hubs, a mall has been conveniently attached to meet most commuter needs. And it’s right here where Blue Bottle Coffee, a cult coffee roaster based in Oakland, has set up its latest coffee parlour. The café is situated on the third floor, right above a busy corridor leading to the Eastern main exit.


Similarly to the Company’s five previous outposts across Tokyo, the interior design is by local practice Schemata Architects, and is marked by an understated palette. Tuff stone is paired with timber, creating a oasis of serenity within an exceptionally busy environment. A hollow-square shaped service station is placed at the very centre, opposite an elongated bar with stools.


At the far end a separate seating section with tables and chairs is situated. The new Blue Bottle Coffee café serves freshly roasted coffee coming straight from Blue Bottle Coffee’s very own roastery across town in Kiyosumi. The menu lists drip coffee, ice coffee, espresso drinks and a small collection of branded coffee utensils for die-hard fans.
