Japanese architecture firm Atelier Huge has designed a minimalist cafe that turns the customers into 'actors.'

The ‘Ecru’ is an ingeniously designed cafe and bar in Japan that was developed by the architect firm Atelier Huge. Even in an exceedingly small site, the cafe has managed to create an open ambience with its strategic street-side location. Ecru features a glazed facade that allows outsiders a window inside the activities of the cafe, while cantilevered-wooden table surfaces and the fake drop ceiling remove any wastage of space, yet offering an intimate surrounding. Design Boom also reports:

with the intention of turning the customers into ‘actors’, the cafe/bar features a glazed face that puts on display the activities of the inside for the city to see. the backdrop of the space is clad in OSB plywood in order to create dimension with its rough texture.
