Hue 5F by Schemata Architects
Hue 5F is a minimal cake shop located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by Schemata Architects. This is a renovation project on 5F follows the first few renovations on 6F, 7F, and RF in 2012. 6F had been used as the tableware storage room and library. However, this the clients decided to use it exclusively as the tableware storage room and relocate the library to 5F. In addition, they also wanted to open a cake shop on 5F. A library and cake shop are a rather unexpected combination: the architects provided a kind of backstage space in between, intended as a buffer zone that visually connects both functions while keeping some distance in between at the same time.
