Chinese Cafe Invites Guests to Eat in a Tiny Indoor Village

By combining the cutest in restaurant decor and the extreme trendiness of the house-within-a-house architectural movement, the folks at YAMODesign Studio struck some incredibly twee gold with the Kale Café in Hangzhou, China. Designed to look like a tiny, inviting village, the entire space is split up into lounge space and a series of little cabins that house the bar, bathroom, and tables. Sculptural trees strung with lights create almost a forest effect around the faux town—which looks most similar to Japan's memorable fishing village home—while also providing bursts of bright red against the otherwise neutral space. Take a closer look below, then head over to Contemporist for the full gallery.
