Keep a lookout for Taiwan’s new container Starbucks in Hualien City! Designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, the entire store is made from 29 large shipping containers painted white and stacked at random to give off a sleek minimalist and grunge aesthetic.

The exterior isn’t the only thing that’s Instagrammable – thanks to the stacking of the containers, the interior is constantly lit with natural sunlight pouring in, creating a cosy and warm atmosphere!
