Lasting impressions

SHAWOOD was established in Japan by Sekisui House in 1995 as a result of demand for a highly engineered housing construction system that displayed resistance and durability to the country’s extreme weather conditions, in particular earthquakes.

In addition, SHAWOOD also catered to Japanese demand for “houses of the future”, delivering technologies that create and support comfortable, harmonious and healthy lifestyles. SHAWOOD have now constructed over 70,000 homes globally, with a consistent roll out of more than 4,000 per year.

SHAWOOD was brought to Australia by Sekisui House in 2012 as part of their commitment to create positive and sustainable communities for all Australians.


SHAWOOD understands the desire for modern simplicity and clean lines, and draws on considered Japanese philosophies, married with a practical understanding of the Australian lifestyle.

SHAWOOD’s lasting impressions

The craftsmanship of a SHAWOOD home can be felt in every join and every finishing touch. The care and attention invested into each home isn’t just about the precise and detailed construction – the quality of life that an owner experiences is just as important.

SHAWOOD’s Japanese heritage permeates the design principles and gives each dwelling an organic sense of consideration, space and intelligent function.
