Wooden houses are the essence of Japanese architecture, as characterized by Hôryû-ji temple in Nara, one of the oldest wooden buildings in the world. Wooden houses made of Japanese cedar (Cryptomeria japonica), Japanese cypress (Chamaecyparis obtuse) and other Japanese timber are easy to live in and well suited to Japanese climates.
Based around our new custom-built housing business, Sumitomo Forestry is developing a wide range of housing and wood products businesses including the remodeling and renovation business and greening business.
Renovation and Leasing Business
We utilize the technologies cultivated in our housing business to expand our renovation and leasing businesses, which create new value for homes. Our diverse services aim to extend the life of homes and provide added peace of mind to homeowners.
Spec Homes Development Business
Backed by the expertise from our businesses that take advantage of the special properties of wood, we develop attractive spec homes in the way that only Sumitomo Forestry can-providing homes that are in harmony with the natural environment and that support prosperous lifestyles.
Sumitomo Forestry has been involved in greening for many years as part of its philosophy of creating a prosperous and pleasant living environment. In recent years, against a backdrop of increasing environmental protection awareness, we have dealt with a wide variety of greening requests, including landscaping and environmental preservation projects.
