Kyomachiya Bungalow with a Loft

a rebuildable Kyomachiya on an alley at north of Nijo Castle


Minimalistic Comfort Living
in a Loft-Style Machiya.

Designed to make the most of limited space while incorporating natural light and ventilation, this single-story Kyomachiya features a loft.

To maximize natural light indoors, skylights are strategically positioned to ensure daylight reaches every corner, and a large window at the back of the living area opens onto a garden. The sloping ceiling also adds vertical space, while minimal partitions in the living area enhance visual unity, creating a sense of spaciousness.

The loft provides additional floor space for various purposes, such as a bedroom, study, or hobby area, catering to the resident's lifestyle needs.

The entrance area can be used for bicycle parking, with a shoe cabinet with ample storage. There is also storage space in the living room and additional storage beside the loft.
