This cafe was built on the seafront facing the entrance of Tokyo Bay at the tip of the peninsula Yokosuka.
Wooden counter table length 6.3m in cafes is placed under the continuous windows of the sea side. You can drink coffee while watching the ocean in front. We’ve considered the height of the floor as the sea looks good from this counter. Our first design about this cafe was to determine the height of the floor And we considered the effective evacuation route for the tsunami when the earthquake.
We thought the modeling that reflects the process of dialogue with the owners. We talked about a lot of topics many times For example, Number of seats, materials, window size, the bedroom size, entrance direction, toilet manufacturer,pet dogs,…. All topics was lined with the same value. We have continued to change little by little the plan in the order of the topics. The results, we were able to create a little clunky and an interesting and a complicated facade .
