Three storey steel frame building

10 min walk from subway Kuramaguchi station

The three storey "House of Steel" was renovated by Hachise back in 2011. In order to enjoy the hobby of playing and listening to music, the owner chose not to go with an ordinary wooden houses, but a steel frame building. The building was further arranged and decorated to become a warm and welcoming home.

The ideas of the owner and the idea of the designer were combined to form a concept of a rough but cool space. Simple ideas like the pure white walls and DIY painted ceilings, floor, and plus a wide open window that can take in plenty of sunlight. The result is a simple and attractive space filled with commitment and charm.



1F as shop space, and 2F above as residence

The south shop entrance faces the Kuramaguchi Street, and the north is connects to the residence floors.
With the 1F space, you can choose to run a profitable store while living on top of it, or lend it to others to be run as a store in the future. As the house is conveniently located within walking distance of supermarkets, train and bus station, it is also possible to use the residential area as a second house when staying in Kyoto.
