While the sea is not directly visible, the wide open sky makes one feel the sea calling at a distance. This cafe is located in an office building, and there is a terrace where one can enjoy the view toward the sea. We provided ~ sets of one-person table and sofa at the cozy seating area by the window, where office workers can work or take a break while enjoying the view outside the window.

In addition, considering the fact that the space may look too empty because of the high ceiling height of 3,500mm, which is disproportional to the floor area of 92㎡, we placed a triangular table like an island to anchor the space. The table, made using a special technique for caulking yacht decks, evokes a feeling of the sea again.
