My K House Building Design
A housing complex consisting of 4 modern residences located in Kitayama in north Kyoto.
Recipient of the Good Design Award in 2005.
My K House was built with the entire 5-story building set retracted from the front street to allow all of the east-facing rooms to get a full view of the townscape along the Takase River and Kyoto’s beautifully laid east-mountain district.
The first floor features patio windows that can be opened completely to extend the café bar into an open-café terrace- a relaxing spot that integrates well into the old quarter.
The guestrooms on the second to fifth floor are modern tatami floored rooms with western bedding.
Each room is equipped with a bathroom, kitchen, washing machine and spacious terrace.
