優雅傳統日式建築的外觀走進屋內，卻是時間與時尚的趣味融合。建於1920年，曾是製扇世家的西院町屋於 2016 年初由京都知名建築事務所八清翻新。建築師將原本結構拆解，保留原町屋舊有的檜木樑柱、門扇、窗等，再將之建置回新的結構中作為裝飾。主牆上刷上粉藍，使得原本嚴肅的町屋添增活潑明亮的感覺。
An elegant exterior of traditional Japanese architecture fused in the flow of time with a touch of modern interior art. Built in 1920, Nanni Saiin Machiya was previously owned by an folding fan artisan. It then refurbished in 2016 by Kyoto’s well known construction company, Hachise. Designer retained some of the old materials, such as the elm beams, sliding door, cabinet doors and windows then reused them as unique decorations of the Machiya.
Once you open and enter the door of Saiin Machiya, you’ll find a gravel floor along with a dormer on top of the high ceiling that brightens the entrance lobby.
As you step up to the dark wooden floor, you’ll find a brass chandelier in the living room along with other antique furnitures, made with the hands of the finest artisans; creating illusions as if you’re traveling in time
The 3 Tatami room next to the living room space with 2 French casement installed. Enjoy the warm bath of the sun
On the right side of the living room is a multi purpose, fully equipped open kitchen. Occasionally we would offer cooking class to the neighborhoods when no guests accommodates at the machiya.
Once you opened the unique traditional sliding door, you’ll find a Japanese garden with Tsubaki as the main visual. Brew a cup of Sencha in the morning, enjoy the seasonal changes of Kyoto while sitting at this beautiful garden.
Be accompanied by the Japanese garden, whether you shower with the vintage style shower-head or bath in the thermostat bathtub surrounded with soft blue grey tiles.
The warm bath of the sun from the magical sunset, exclusively for your enjoyment of a quiet reading moment.
The century old elm wood that mounted between the reading space and the master bedroom cleverly combined the traces from the folding fan artisan with modern interior art
Different from the elegant style of the master bedroom, the 2nd floor tatami bedroom presents the soft brightness from the spike rice of early Autumn.
