Lorenzo Nencioni / Yuko Nagayama

This more than century-old coffee house in Tokyo was just masterfully restructured by award-winning young architect Yugo Nagayama. Her vision provided for a pleasantly warm and minimal space, and remains unequivocally and charmingly Japanese in its contemporary guise. While remaining remarkably true to its original elevation, the structure now houses an updated coffee house called Kabuya on its ground level and features a small contemporary arts library on its first floor.

These images are fresh from the adventurous camera of 2DM’s accomplished architecture and design photographer Lorenzo Nencioni.
