Sabai House, Studio Monaka


Sabai, which means comfortable in Thai, defines this home in the Kita Ward of Kyoto. A traditional machiya, wooden townhouse typical of Kyoto, this project was a renovation by Studio Monaka. Sabai House was designed with the intent of creating unique spaces to spend time, whether that be the bedroom, filled with natural light and offering views of the private garden, or reading in the private study room.
