Starbucks’s shop design is a hot topic in recent years. The iron-plus-wood American style assembly line cannot of course satisfy people’s increasingly diverse tastes. Moreover, there are so many rising boutique coffee shops as rivals. So Starbucks had to put a few big surprises from time to time to surprise you, Xiu Xiu’s own old strength. From The boutiques that cooperated with Kengo and other architects went to the ultimate white flash shop and then to the concept shop on the Zurich train. As long as they are serious, they can come up with new tricks every time, without repeating them. After opening the news, I unconsciously tapped into one of the “Starbucks of the world’s first xxx.” Recently, their destination was a century-old house in Kyoto, Japan.
Dining in Kyoto, Japan, is a characteristic alley full of Kyoto, adjacent to the famous Kyoto Kiyomizu Temple. On both sides of the alley, there are old-fashioned traditional shops, such as local shops, pottery shops, and Japanese food kiosks, which are full of tranquility and peaceful atmosphere. In short, all this seems to be incompatible with Starbucks? It doesn’t seem like it’s necessarily.
Δ lined up for tourists
This is the new store that Starbucks officially opened on June 30th, “Kyoto-Nirin Tea House Shop.” If you don’t look closely, you might consider it an ordinary hot spring hotel or one of Kyoto’s oldest houses. In fact, there is nothing wrong with this idea, because this new store is indeed not a newly built building, but is an ancient folk house built more than 100 years ago in the Taisho era. Looking closely, the familiar mermaid LOGO is reflected on the blue-and-white Japanese-style warm curtain, which perfectly matches the surrounding street-view style. Each corner fully expresses the high respect for traditional culture of this new store.
Of course, Starbucks opened in ancient streets, so why should we say it is a member of the “world’s first” series? You will understand this by opening the curtain. That’s right, this is the first Starbucks in the world that has been designed in traditional Japanese style from the inside out. Entering this quaint Japanese-style home, you will first be attracted to the narrow corridor leading to the inner courtyard, and all the sunshine will be projected into the room along this corridor. The entire promenade is as striking as a lantern.
The bar is located at the deepest level of the first floor, with a faint yellow warm light from the ceiling to the bottom of the counter, as if the candle of the old house is warm.
△ Adjacent to a Japanese-style dry landscape garden, which is very Kyoto.
After finishing the drinks and boarding the second floor, you will see 3 tatami dining areas, the world’s first Japanese-style tatami-style Starbucks. Guests can take off their shoes and sit on a seat made from the “Tango crepe” traditional high-grade fabric from Kyoto. Enjoy a cup of coffee and experience the special experience of modern life combined with traditional elements.
With another Dongfeng in the world’s first series of screens, we come to appreciate a few other special Starbucks shops.
