INSPIRATION:
Kyoto is one of the oldest cities of Japan in which the traditions and artisanal crafts were cherished. While having less successors has been an issue of the industry, this project intends to inherit and pass on the heritage of Kyoto and its values to the next generations. Another inspiration is to make an efficient use of an underutilized real estate, a former educational facility which was closed due to the recent decrease in the number of children, and bring energy and flow of visitors to the neighborhood by converting the use into a hotel to satisfy the increasing demands for accommodations.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

A former educational facility is converted into a hotel that houses 39 guest rooms, a cafe and shop, 2 restaurants, and a spa. Holding Heritage And Innovation as its concept, this project utilized traditional materials and techniques, including showcasing a workshop of kintsugi masters, and simultaneously proposed new ways of their use in contemporary design.

CHALLENGE:
Since this project was a renovation of a former educational facility, planning had to respect the existing shell. In order to create a functional layout, Machiya-style was appointed. Machiya is a traditional townhouses of Kyoto that has a narrow frontage stretching deep into the lot. Thus, most of the guest rooms are shaped rectangular in plan.
