Located in Nishijin, Kyoto, JURAKU RO is a mixed-use project that includes both residential apartment and a hotel. As the name indicates, this building is located in the site of Old Castle ‘JURAKU DAI’. Street in this area used to be lined with Machiya (Kyoto’s Old townhouse) where traditional waving industry flourished. There are only a few old townhouses remain, and most of the recent apartment building in this area doesn’t seem to contribute to surrounding scenery while their façade is the only element to follow the landscape regulation. In this project, we considered how JURAKU RO could be part of surrounding neighbors, as well as contributing creating Kyoto’s landscape in the present day.Save this picture!© Yasutake KondoSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Yasutake KondoOpen Space in the TownBesides its major function as a rental apartment, JURAKU RO also includes facilities for short-stay guestroom and café space on the ground floor where many and unspecified persons can be accommodated. Semi-outdoor space (Piloti) and the grass parking lots provide multi-functional open space for residents, locals, and hotel guest to organize local events.Save this picture!© Yasutake KondoDOMA; a place interconnect indoor and outdoor, public and privateAfter passing through Noren (fabric wall hanging) at the entrance, you may see the ‘DOMA’ that spread itself up to the back of the building and each flat is connecting to this corridor. DOMA, a place intermediate between outdoor and indoor, is one of important elements in Kyoto’s traditional house. It provides access to light and wind in an elongated closed space and also allows to walk through inside of a house with one’s shoes on and connects to the outdoor space. DOMA would provide a variety of functions and purposes to JURAKURO, from local events to casual community gathering. Each flat also enjoys Doma space attached to the inner garden where residents can experience this unique space while in the room. Save this picture!© Yasutake KondoSave this picture!© Yasutake KondoCustomized Rental ApartmentEach flat is composed of three rooms -Doma, Main room, and a bathroom. The ductworks are exposed and the partition between the main room and the bathroom made with concrete block. You may find no storage or drawer, but just one big space. Usually, the rental apartment is furnished as if their lifestyle is expected to be similar to others. In fact, no residents are the same when it comes to a preferred style or design which result in a billion different outcomes and possibilities for custom furniture. Each resident customizes their own furniture depending on their lifestyle and needs, with a consistent support from professional designer and constructors. By offering this service will enable for residents to discover and be attached to their unique lifestyle more, this, as a result, encourage to connect to the locals.Save this picture!© Yasutake KondoSave this picture!Elevation and SectionSave this picture!© Yasutake KondoThe city’s landscapeThe finish of exterior wall of JURAKU RO is a black. You may find it unusual to see the black building standing in the small town, however, this color is originated from the old castle ‘JURAKU DAI’. As a memory of this site, we built a modern black architecture where JURAKU DAI is once a symbol of prosperity. Project gallerySee allShow lessShanghai Modern Art Museum / Atelier DeshausSelected ProjectsAIA Announces Winners of 2018 Housing AwardsArchitecture News Share Lead Architect: ArchDaily Koji Yamanaka Photographs Projects Architects: GENETO Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/895064/juraku-ro-geneto Clipboardcenter_img Juraku Ro / GENETO 2017 Hotels ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/895064/juraku-ro-geneto Clipboard Juraku Ro / GENETOSave this projectSaveJuraku Ro / GENETO “COPY” Photographs:  Yasutake Kondo Year:  Save this picture!© Yasutake Kondo+ 19Curated by María Francisca González Share CopyAbout this officeGENETOOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsHospitality ArchitectureHotelsMixed Use ArchitectureResidential ArchitectureHousesKyoto-shiKyōto-shiJapanPublished on May 27, 2018Cite: “Juraku Ro / GENETO” 26 May 2018.
