Hapshuu Cake and Cafe



Yoshino which is registered into world heritage site, is a one of the most important producing area of the Japanese cedar. From ancient times,the Yoshino cedar has been widely used in Japanese architecture. However, in recent years, the tradition is fading rapidly because of exhaustion of resources, development of new materials, the shortage of talented people, etc. Our client bought the vacant warehouse made of Yoshino ceder which was used to a storage of cedars. She planned to convert it into a pastry shop and a cafe. Our design is so simple as always. We removed all ornaments and artificial materials, regained the beautiful ceder framework , and designed a kitchen and sanitaly space functionally. Although budgets were few, the beauty of Yoshino cedar helped us.
