This is the full renovation of 80 year-old traditional Kyoto-style Machiya.

Machiya has an unique wooden structure holding the spatial attraction which is totally different from the modern construction. This project aims to enhance the potential dynamism by reinforcing the structure as well as to achieve the comfort by insulating the existing enclosure. This renovation also practices the new life style through the mixture of new / old, such as flexible planning around the vertical void, reuse of ‘Doma’ space, traditional Kyoto module etc.
