Japanese & Western Designs

THE MACHIYA SHINSEN-EN is a combination of two designs that perfectly complement one another - traditional and modern architecture. The ‘Machiya Wing’ is housed in a traditional Japanese machiya house - a wooden structure complete with tatami mats, and delicate shoji sliding screens. Directly behind the main machiya building is the ‘Tei-en Wing’, a three-story building with 6 unique rooms types.

Color & Design

Taking cue from Japanese history, you will find rooms accented by a sophisticated orange, and vibrant blue. A sunset orange backdrop paired with the calm blue of the bed frame emotes a sense of ‘mono-no-aware’ - a concept that the Japanese have long embraced since centuries past. A design that not only reminds us of A design that not only reminds us of a beautiful dusk sky, but will evoke a sense of beauty within.

“During the autumn evenings, the sunset slowly disappears behind the mountain edges, As birds fly back to their homes in threes and fours and twos.” - Sei Shonagon (The Pillow Book)
