Success with this Starbucks, using 2000 timber batons spanning from 1.3m-4m and 6cm section. In total the batons cover 4.4km. That's a pretty long distance.
Using a weaving technique the architect has managed to weave the batons diagonally on one point to create a web-like interior envelope.
Will definitely visit this Starbucks if i ever get to Japan.
