Proposing “Family Suite Renovation” for our existing housing
Under the slogan “Comfortable living–now and always,” our group operates remodeling and renovation businesses that contribute to the safety, security, and comfort of our customers.
In September 2019, Sekisui House Remodeling Group, a specialized subsidiary of Sekisui House, launched three remodeling companies* involved in what we call the lifestyle design business, which encourages families to spend their time together with greater excitement by going beyond the conventional concept of a living room, dining room, and kitchen. By reinforcing the structure of our existing lightweight steel-framed housing, we can renovate partitioned rooms into larger living rooms. In addition, by simultaneously introducing the warming concept of Idokoro Dan-netsu by upgrading thermal insulation in the living room, dining room, and kitchen area and by installing equipment offering greater comfort, we can help to reduce CO2 emissions while enabling families to live in greater warmth and comfort.

Thanks to enhanced thermal insulation and more comfortable equipment, the Idokoro Dan-netsu concept is an excellent way to enjoy roomy and more comfortable living spaces.
Under the Idokoro Dan-netsu concept, we can provide greater comfort to residents by installing additional thermal insulation and remodeling with a focus on the living spaces and in keeping with the desired lifestyles.
By combining the newly developed RF Support Beam System with the Idokoro Dan-netsu concept, thermal insulation is upgraded for greater efficiency with emphasis on the living room, dining room, and kitchen spaces. Moreover, the Cocotas multi-split air conditioner is installed for utility areas such as corridors in order to reduce the temperature differences between each room. When undertaking a remodeling project, the Sekisui House Group accurately determines in advance the current state of thermal insulation and other circumstances based on the history of each dwelling unit. By appropriately combining our proprietary thermal insulation and renovation materials, we undertake renovations in a short period of time to exacting specifications even in houses more than 20 years old while enhancing comfort, economy, and environmental considerations.
