Bruce 2nd
Bruce 2nd is originally a traditional Kyoto style residential dwelling, called Kyo-Machiya from 1920's.

The black shiny tiles for exterior were designed and custom-made by Bruce. The iron window frame in the revolution shaft style is built by his friend, an iron artisan. Those gives you the impression of the early Showa Era, a style called, 'RETORO-Modan' in Japanese.

The house is estimated at least 85 years old as we found the newpapers from 1927 while its renovation work. The renovation work started in 2005 by Bruce and the staff of his shop, The main constraction works like the replacement of the pillars were done with the support of the professional builders.

The front space of the shop is for the display area, the rear space is built for the workshop. A loft style additional floor is built in the half rear. Also nicelly aged thick beams can be seen through the high ceiling that welcome you to this house just as the comfortable residential dwelling. We hope you enjoy the atmosphere Bruce created.
