Hosoo Residence

Enchanting ambience and local textiles in Kyoto

Tucked away on a quieter spot among Kyoto’s crowded, trellised streets, the Hosoo Residence nevertheless affords closeness to the city’s historic sights, along with its burgeoning shopping scene including around Oike Dori and the nearby markets. Here you can retreat from the thronging pavements into an atmospheric single-bedroom sanctuary for two adults, cocooned in homely burnished teak. Hosoo, a company established in 1688, produces textiles by employing the classic (Kyoto district) Nishijin weaving method, helping form part of an ambient effect dominating the residence. Along with bespoke furniture and minimalist windows, the artwork creates a dimly lit but intriguing space which gradually reveals itself to guests.
