Cafe la Loop 86 in Shanghai

カフェ・ループ86 上海MIFA店

Café La Loop 86 is a cafe and gallery housed in Shanghai’s Shipyard 1862, an old shipyard on the Huangpu river that Japanese architect Kengo Kuma has transformed into a mixed-use space housing a theatre, commercial spaces, atriums and multi-purpose halls. I wanted my design to respect Kuma’s designs, and his use of materials and lighting. The cafe’s facade is made from gradated glass, ensuring a slice of tranquil privacy for the guests inside and allowing the cafe’s design to effortlessly flow into its exposed concrete surroundings.
