A former pawn shop was renovated into a quaint Japanese style share house.
It will open in March within a 10-minute walk from Gifu Station.
This is the first share house in Gifu that SHARE HOUSE180° have produced.
A quaint Japanese house was renovated with modern taste
The house consists of seven individual rooms. It’s just the right size for a share house.
It’s a wooden house that makes you feel at home. You will feel as if you are staying at your parents’ house.
The living room has a low table with cushions around it.
A soft and calm coloured wall has a huge deep grey 50-inch TV set hanging from it. This room will be the space where house mates gather around.
There are dim, warm spotlights in the living room, giving it a stylish feel.
The special thing about this house is that old fashioned paper doors were remodeled into glass sliding doors.
It will be nice to cook a delicious dinner, and have a meal with your house mates.
Although it is a share house, you will be able to relax in this modern designed house and feel as if you were in a quaint café.
A former pawn shop was renovated!?
Indeed, this 40-year-old, former pawn shop was renovated into this house!
The quaint style and the clay walls were preserved; the counter tops were removed; and the beams were revealed.
Old features were renovated, and the kitchen and the bathroom were renewed into a more convenient fashion.
It’s a combination of Japanese and Western architecture, which makes this share house rare in the Tokai area.
The room used as a safe room, when the house was a pawn shop, is now used as a laundry room; because it is soundproof.
In the share house there is some evidence showing that it was once a pawn shop: Some windows have latticework for example.
Isn’t it interesting that you can actually see the history behind this house?
Private rooms with chic atmosphere!
Wood was used for all the rooms, which gives the house a bright warm atmosphere. At the same time, dark grey paint was used on the wood, which gives the house a chic
atmosphere. The color balance is exquisite.
Basic furniture such as a bed, a mattress, a desk and a chair, are all provided, so you can move in with a single suitcase of your own!
The multi-purpose room
In addition to individual rooms and the living room, this share house has a multi-purpose room. There are desks and chairs in this multi-purpose room, so you can use it for free to study, work, create something, etc.
It is nice that you can use your own room, the living room and the multi-purpose room, according to your needs.
A great access to Nagoya!
This share house is recommended to someone who has a job in Gifu and still wants to visit Nagoya on weekends, or someone who has a job in Nagoya and wants to live in Gifu, because it only takes about 20 minutes from Gifu to Nagoya without changing trains.
You can also join the events in Nagoya that 180 holds, so you can interact further afield, with people living in share houses in Nagoya.
