JJ Bean’s newest (and coolest).

Just in time for the olympic madness, JJ has opened up another spot.  As with all of their locations, it’s built with a completely unique design from all the others that precede it. What’s really fun about this one in particular is that it’s fully outside on the CBC plaza.

I love the design – The shape and geometry of it make me think of a grounded tree fort in a concrete jungle.  Super cool.

What does it look like at night, you ask?

740 Hamilton St.
( just off Georgia + Hamilton )

Bonus:  I think the designer may have been inspired by one of the greatest video game levels of all time.  You decide.

    It almost looks as if it could be portable. Put it on a train car, take it wherever… The possibilities are endless.

    … I’m waiting for the balloons to pop out of the top and watch it fly away..

    Is this a permanent shop or something temporary for the olympics?
