Chowa Living in Balance

The BUILDER Chōwa Concept Home brings together an international design, development, and construction team from Japan-based Sekisui House and its wholly-owned home building company Woodside Homes to introduce technologies, best practices, and a new approach to improving society through housing to the US. Chōwa is an ancient Japanese term that represents the spirit of partnership and reflects life-balance, well-being, sustainable value, and connectedness to nature and will spotlight Sekisui House’s core value of “love of humanity” as a strategic platform for an innovative home of the future.

This house will engage with a growing preference for homes that support health and well-being, highlighting the balance between indoor living and outdoor life, between technology and privacy, between comfort and simplicity, and between themselves and their community and the natural environment.
