Maintaining and increasing the value of your home as an asset; growing together with your family.
Houses that grow together with families
Adapting to future changes in lifestyles
Flexible changes of layout and extensions
Our requirements towards houses change with time, due to changes in family composition and lifestyles.
Thanks to SHAWOOD’s unique structural system, the floor layout can be changed at a reasonable cost.
Extensions can also be made smoothly and safely, without putting excessive stress on the existing structure.

Dual Ventilation System, creating a passageway of air throughout the whole house
Preventing moisture, and improving the durability of the whole house
In order to maintain a house over the long-term, it is important to maintain the structure.
With wooden houses, it is especially important to prevent internal condensation in the walls and other enclosed portions of the structure.
SHAWOOD houses are constructed by first installing the roof and then working on the interior, thereby leaving no moisture.
By securing the airtightness of the envelope and leaving no gaps, moisture is prevented from entering the inside of the walls, and even if moisture does enter, it is discharged promptly.
In order to discharge moisture that enters from outside, SHAWOOD developed the Dual Ventilation System, with 2 air layers inside the walls.
By creating a passageway of air on the outside as well as the inside of the structural plywood, moisture is discharged using the natural upward flow of air.
Moreover, air passageways have been designed in locations such as the attic, under the floor and balcony, where moisture tends to accumulate.
Even if moisture ends up entering, the whole house discharges the moisture, improving the durability of the building.
Homes that add value with age
Creating Keinen Bika communities
Thinking of homes as part of the community
Sekisui House is pursuing the concept of Keinen Bika, or creating a landscape that grows more beautiful over time.
Keinen Bika means to create communities that blend in with the natural environment and scenery, to build durable houses using materials that do not deteriorate over time, and to consider the environment to create a rich and lively community that strikes the balance with a cyclical life that harmonizes with the environment.
The Keinen Bika community-building is not just about pursuing asset value, but nurturing the community with the local society, valuing the balance with the intrinsic ecosystem of the area, and creating a sustainable community in which everyone can live comfortably in the generations to come.
The Gohon-no-ki indigenous landscaping concept
Garden planning that considers the ecosystem
3 for the birds, 2 for the butterflies.
The Gohon-no-ki concept is a Sekisui House unique concept for creating gardens and communities that consider the local ecosystem.
The aim is to connect with other living creatures and nature, and to sustain & revive the ecosystem network that is being lost.
With the concept of planting trees that are indigenous to the area - 3 for the birds, 2 for the butterflies - we plant trees that suit the climate of each area in each country, which brings blessings to various living beings, and improves the beauty of trees that have been nurtured over the long-term, as well improving the value of assets in the community.
Our ultimate goal is for the garden of the house to contribute to enriching the environment as part of the local ecosystem.
