Kengo Kuma designs the world's most peaceful Starbucks If all Starbucks cafes looked like this, it would almost certainly put an end to take-out drinks! After all, who would want to leave a building this tranquil? Architects at Tokyo-based and world-renowned Kengo Kuma & Associates firm have designed a Starbucks store in Japan that draws on its peaceful surroundings. Located in the Fukuoka Perfecture, it can be found on a street leading directly to the Dazaifu Tenmagu holy shrine, which is dedicated to a Japanese deity.
