The Most Beautiful and Serene Starbucks in the World

Happens to be in Fukuoka Perfecture, on the street leading straight to a shrine called Dazaifu Tenmagu. The coffee shop, which looks nothing like any other Starbucks on the planet, was designed by world-renowned architect Kengo Kuma to resemble the natural surroundings of the Shinto shrine. It makes me wish Starbucks would allow more locations to reflect their spirit and history, while still maintaining that quintessential Starbuck-y-ness. [via DesignTaxi]
