Yabashi Architects slots cafe and pocket park between buildings in Kyushu



A tiered pocket-park tops this cafe in Kyushu, Japan, which Yabashi Architects has erected on the grounds of a building destroyed in an earthquake.

Inside is a small cafe that's almost entirely lined with cross-laminated timber (CLT), a warm contrast to the building's steel framework.
Wood has also been used to create the long service counter, stool seats and...
