Being a hometown coffee juggernaut, Blue Bottle opens it's 8th Japanese store in the historical prefecture of Kyoto.
Just launching their first new cafe outside of Tokyo, Blue Bottle has a lot of things to celebrate at this moment. The newest Blue Bottle is also, in a way, the brand’s oldest, located in a century-old building steps from the Nanzen-ji Temple. That 13th century temple and garden is among the most important Zen temples in all of Japan, and the new cafe is pretty zen to match. So would Blue Bottle be a historical relic itself? Not really.
Jo Nagasaka of Schemata Architects was behind the remodel of the machiya style wooden townhouse, which features exposed mud walls, bye brick walls trend. So take a look below, not a ton of professional photos but here are some to show. Otherwise not a lot to say, unless you all want to rehash the Nestle stake... below.
// 64 Nanzenji Kusagawacho, Sakyo Ward, Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture 606-8437, Japan
