Good afternoon guys!!!
I have a happy, lucky and wonderful weekend!!!
How about you?
This post here is to continue to introduce the Japanese style homes that we are thinking to provide for people in Auckland and New Zealand.
Please give me any comments on this blog if you are interested in the Japanese style homes, renovations or anything that you would like to say.
I am a Japanese designer and may be able to help you if you have any questions related to these.
Here I introduce other features of Japanese home design.
The Design Feature 3: Strong connection of Interior and Exterior
We Japanese traditionally liked the living environment with strong connection with the outside.
Due to the post and beam structure we can create large openings between the columns, leading to very smooth and direct outside/inside transition.
This tradition is a bit similar to Kiwis in a way that they also like to have outside living area such as deck, balcony or turf garden,etc which can directly be accessed from inside.
The Japanese house design strongly focuses on bringing in the nature into the living space so, even though your house is built in a dense urban area with tiny space the occupants often try to create tiny space for a garden.
Learning from the traditional ways of bringing in the nature we, Japan Homes, are planning to introduce unique ideas to create your own garden outside as well as inside.
Isnt It very nice!?
What do you think about these ideas!?

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.
Any comments or questions are very welcome.
Please let me know!
