Thanks a lot for visiting Japan Homes’ Blog.


The most important legal challenge to Auckland Unitary Plan (AUP) has been solved.

The High Court Decision

In February 2017 the High Court rejected the appeals against increasing housing densities in areas covering 29,000 properties, in suburbs including Grey Lynn, Parnell, Orakei, Glendowie and Blockhouse Bay.

So now the new zoning applies to these areas and the more dense housing development is allowed.

Although there are still some legal challenges, we will see no possibility for major changes in AUP.

Qualification: Degree of Architecture Studies and Graduate Diploma of Psychology (University Of Auckland) ; 2nd Grade Cad Technician (Japan)
Family: Extremely lovely wife, wonderfully kind mother in low, awesomely hardworking chickens, surprisingly lazy cat and unbelievably naughty dog.

I love architecture and design so much that I have been to so many buildings and places around the world such as Sydney Opera House in Sydney, CCTV building in Beijing, Empire State Building in New York, Royal Palace in Bangkok, Houryu-Ji in Nara, etc. However, the residential building attracts me the most. For nearly 10 years I have visited heaps of local and historical homes around New Zealand which I feel the builders’ great workmanship as well as occupants’ life.

From this experience my aim is to design and provide the comfortable and affordable houses with the spirit of Japanese workmanship that people enjoy and improve their quality of life.

In this blog I write my everyday experience of work to show what is a designer’s work and how it goes at Japan Homes.
