This café is located in a district where the age-old Japanese landscape of rice paddies dotted with traditional homes still exists. In order to create a space set apart from these surroundings, the architects inserted a buffer zone into the façade. Inside, they left the simple truss structure exposed. The space is small yet relaxed and open.
