Text description provided by the architects. 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 café. 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 outside space.
