At Sekisui House, sustainability means ‘built to last’, and this underpins everything we do - from home building, to community design.
We believe in Smart Universal Design: sustainable design that’s applicable to everyone, regardless of their age, ability, or stage in life.
For us, building a new home is not just about finding and clearing a piece of land, and then building. It’s about careful and meticulous planning. It’s thinking about the bigger issues - from spatial considerations, to ensuring every development is right for the local community, and is in harmony with its surroundings.
A NEW UNDERSTANDING OF RESIDENTIAL SUSTAINABILITY
The idea that a home grows as generations do, helps define the design of our floor plans, and makes renovating down the track much easier than in a conventional home. When designing, we think about what a home and its environment will look like in the future.
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE ENVIRONMENT
While environmental sustainability is just one of our design considerations, it’s still as important as ever. Our timber comes from sustainable forests, and we always give our customers the option of incorporating solar panels and other items we think will suit the local environment and climate. We design our homes and orientate our living spaces so as to achieve passive heating and cooling efficiencies. The design of our communities, parklands, roads, and walkways are all considered with the environment in mind.
HOMES. NOT JUST HOUSES
There’s something very personal about a Sekisui House building or environment. While our houses have walls, windows and rooves, there’s a key philosophy driving our design approach: that these are homes for future generations, as much as for today.
