Appreciation towards Terminal01 for providing the following description:
Terminal01 was founded by Kei Haraguchi and Keigo Miki at Osaka Japan.
We both studied and graduated form Pratt Institute School of Architecture in NY.
We are 32 years old.
Our office mainly design architecture, however we had been designed interior, product and exhibition.
The cafe is situated on the second floor of the recently opened Dojima River Forum in Osaka Japan.
Osaka city used to be called a water-capital. Rivers and canals once crisscrossed the city.
There is a big solid wooden staircase as an element, which connects ground level and second level,
the Cafe. Façade of the building is glass curtain wall, so that we tried to design the staircase symbolic
to emphasize as an entrance of the Café.
Material of the ceiling is glossy vinyl sheet.
Because the cafe is located on the second floor of the building, people, walking on the ground level,
can naturally catch the ceiling of the cafe.
The glossy ceiling reflects the surroundings and scenes of the inside space. The reflection is as if the
reflection of the river.
The reflection of inside and outside makes people consider the continuity of the inside space and
