With the large protruding roof reminiscent of a tree’s crown, it’s easy to see the inspiration behind the Coeda House. Designed by Kengo Kuma and Associates, the building steals its form from a large, shade-offering tree. That unique design was not chosen just for aesthetics, though we’d argue those are equally impressive, but rather to remain structurally stable during an earthquake. Situated in Shizuoka, Japan, the Coeda House serves as a cafe and offers those having a quick sip stunning views from any seat. That’s because the design allowed for the elimination of any view-blocking columns. If you’re ever in the area, we can think of far worse places for a caffeine infusion.
