Inspiring Tokyo Cafe Residence Concept

The 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. Hannah Howard 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.
