House with Static and Dynamic Gardens

A three-storey house built along the river in a quiet residential area on the south side of Tojiin Station. This is a renovated house with designs and arrangements that make your living-space fun, such as a versatile LDK and two gardens that present different atmospheres.


A tasteful facade

A building with a splendid facade that is typical of a Japanese architecture. Bamboo blinds and lattices are installed to windows and doors, giving it a distinctive Kyoto-like appearance. Bicycles and motorcycles can be parked at the approach. If you go down the stairs on the right side of the photo, you can reach the passage leading to the side door on the 1st floor.


Versatile LDK

The Living-Dining-Kitchen on the 1st floor is an open space that can be used not only for meals but also for various scenes. By expanding the worktable of the kitchen. you can make it into a workspace. The living area and dining area are designed to be a generous space without any partitions, considering the flow of housework. Large windows are set in the living and dining room to allow air ventilation from both gardens.


Rooms with a traditional
Japanese atmosphere

Different from the modern Japanese atmosphere on the 1F, the 2nd floor has a beautiful tatami room with traditional Japanese arrangements. From the wide windows facing the bright balcony overlooking the river, soft sunlight shines in through the shoji screens, creating beautiful shadows in the room.


Bedroom with
a photogenic ceiling

A comfy tatami room on the 3F where you can spend all day in. The Japanese washi wallpaper gently diffuses the light, making it a bright room during the day without turning on the lights. The beautiful ceiling that makes use of the shape of the hipped roof extends from all sides toward the center, giving a charm and premium impression.


Static and dynamic gardens

A quiet and static garden adjacent to the living room on the roadside, and an active, bright garden next to the dining room facing the river.
The two gardens, which have the opposite static and dynamic properties, are connected through the living room and dining room, adding depth to the space.

The 1F is a floor plan with a strolling line that allows you to move around the room around the kitchen counter. A spacious floor with a sense of openness that makes the best use of the space. In addition, by expanding the worktable in the kitchen, it can also be used as a work desk, a place where you can concentrate on your work at home. The space of the 2F can be flexibly arranged according to changes in the family structure. The private 3F can also be considered as a bedroom or a family hobby room.
This is a residence where you can live for a long time with an emphasis on the ease of living and functionality.

Even living for many years, I can still feel a little joy in my home every day by day... I continue my design works with the motto of creating such a home. In past projects, we have designed comfortable living environments with plans that were conscious of ventilation on the depth side of Machiya and daylighting on the frontage side.

Innocent smile is his charming point. The beloved character of the Lifestyle Planning Department is an expected rookie with a qualification as a first-class architect. A hard worker who eagerly learns every bit of knowledge of real estate and Kyomachiya while making use of his experiences so far. Loves beer. His brisk character that never refuses a sudden drinking party invitation is also attractive.
