Developing Beautiful, Long-lasting Cities and Communities

Sumitomo Forestry formulates townscapes Development Guidelines for each project that incorporates the size, geography, environment and other distinct characteristics of each property to develop beautiful, long-lasting towns and communities. In addition to property design codes, we also create landscapes that unify homes with nature to bring a sense of oneness. Our goal is to realize comfortable living environments through land plans and building arrangements that consider the adjacent land and buildings and take advantage of natural airflows, sunlight, and vegetation. At the same time, we place particular emphasis on the design and structural layout of residential spaces to bring out the most comfortable living spaces that also provide privacy.
