HI All,


We have begun renovation of a traditional Bungalow style home in Central Auckland.

Here are the existing home.

And existing floor plans (we have measured on site)

We do not touch the exterior much because we would like to keep the authentic look of this traditional home.

However, as the owner request, we are going to offer Japanese style interior renovation as below:

This project would be unique because of the contrast between the European exterior look with the Japanese interior.

I will post updates about this project as our work progress.

We are going to join Auckland Home Show 2019!!

Please visit and talk to us at our booth!!!

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!
