This chapter presents an analysis of adaptations of machiya, traditional Japanese townhouses, in Kyoto. The study aims to develop models for future reuse of machiya that combine contemporary lifestyles and traditional characteristics, in order to present possibilities for the preservation of machiya. The models for reuse are based on an evaluation of the spatial layout of renovated machiya in general and an analysis of the modifications of typical machiya elements in particular.
