Appreciation towards Keiji Ashizawa Design for providing the following description:

Blue Bottle涩谷咖啡店与繁忙的市中心相隔不远,在两座公园之间创造出一个休闲惬意的场所。本店是Keiji Ashizawa Design为Blue Bottle所做的第二间门店室内设计。

The Blue Bottle Coffee Shibuya cafe is located a short walk from the busy atmosphere of the downtown area. Designed as an urban retreat situated between two parks, the interior is the second Blue Bottle Coffee produced by our studio.

穿过北谷公园后,可以看见在Ishinomaki Lab长椅上享用咖啡的顾客,再往前则是围绕厨房设置的弧形瓷砖吧台。这些带有独特火山灰釉面的瓷砖是连接室内与室外空间的关键材料,由伦敦材料制造商Dzek和阿姆斯特丹设计工作室Formafantasma合作开发。整个咖啡馆内共铺设了超过7000块瓷砖,由一位技艺纯熟的工匠手工完成。

Walking through Kitaya park past customers enjoying coffee on the Ishinomaki Lab benches, you first encounter a large, curved tile-counter surrounding the kitchen area. These tiles, with a special volcanic ash glaze, are a key material to connect the interior and exterior and were developed as a collaboration between London material manufacturer, Dzek, and the Amsterdam-based design studio Formafantasma. Throughout the cafe, more than 7000 tiles were carefully laid by a single skilled artisan.

On the ground floor, we placed tables of differing heights – a high counter with stools so that people can watch the barista preparing their coffee, and a lower table for people to enjoy the park from inside.

Moving up to the second floor, you will find a variety of seating options designed to suit the needs of different customers. At one end of the space, a lowered floor area with banquette seating (upholstered in an autumnal orange textile) can be separated-off from the main area via a grey, sheer curtain. An oval dining table in the center provides a casual, communal atmosphere for sitting around, and a high counter table with a library-like light allows for quiet groups and singles to sit at the rear of the space. At the far end, a low, tiled coffee table is surrounded by comfortable lounge chairs and sofas.

In addition to the early morning coffee/food menu, appetizers and natural wine will also be available in the evening. We hope that visitors will enjoy the warm atmosphere as if they had been invited to visit the welcoming house of a close friend.
