G Architects Studio has created the Suetomi AOQ Cafe Stand in Kyoto, Japan.

This project is a small coffee stand in Kyoto that functions as a signboard to lead visitors to the nearby main store of Suetomi – a confectionery brand.

"The space stands out with its materiality. Soy sauce and ammonium chloride were used to patinate the copper facade," said G Architects Studio.

When closed at night, a backlit roll screen covering the stand turns it into a billboard.

This project has been shortlisted in the small project category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
