Kengo Kuma and Associates ‘s interior celebrates the warm grain of natural unfinished wood. Through careful positioning they constructed a woven mass of wooden segments that form a cave-like space. The team built the web-like cafe interior near Dazaifu Tenmangu, one of the country’s principle shrines. The sacred spot dates all the way back to 919 A.D., and it receives about 2 million visitors a year.
