The Scarlet Kyomachiya
a hideaway for adults with a playful spirit
In the back alley of Higashiyama-Shichijo,
a town overflowing with history and culture,
there is a hideaway Kyomachiya for adults.
The exterior has an exotic atmosphere
while retaining the appearance of a traditional Kyomachiya.
The interior is a luxurious space filled with extraordinary excitement,
like a fine lounge or bar.
How about spending some luxurious and relaxing moments that are only for adults?
Despite compact in size, there are two rooms in addition to the bedroom and dining room, ample storage for 1~2 people, a simple yet sophisticated kitchen, and a playful surprise hidden in the kitchen.
The hidden room can be made into a room for your favorite collections.
The counter at the entrance is an excellent, space-saving design that can be folded and stored. You may use it as an "Omotenashi" (hospitality) place to serve tea and sweets when guests arrive.
A shelf that can normally be used for storage becomes a bar counter when the door is fully opened. Not only it is useful for home parties, but also a picturesque space to display scotches and brandy.
A garden is essential for a Machiya townhouse located at the end of an alley for ventilation and lighting. This time, we created a small garden in the image of an English garden.
The Hidden Room
The hidden Japanese-style room is a perfect space for a retreat. It is also a perfect room for study, yoga, or meditation when you want to concentrate.
An Extraordinary Space
The wide-view porch was designed to resemble a "Hiroen" space by the window in a Japanese inn or hotel. The floor is covered with a red carpet, giving the room a Western-style finish.。
