My thought process behind this project was to incorporate a coffee shop on the lower level of the building and a residence on the top level. The building structure, floor plan, and overall idea was original. I aimed to use the simple design of Japan, while using some American elements of design that seem to be trending in Tokyo. A simple take on the Japanese "Kissaten" style of coffee, which requires effort and skill to create. An aesthetically pleasing space that wants you to relax from the busy Tokyo city.
