Hi Everyone,

Thanks a lot for visiting our blog.

We love creating unique pieces of furniture using recycled materials.

(For Japanese writing see at the bottom)

Recycled Materials

When demolish a part of an old house for a renovation project, there will be often lots of good materials found such as timber flooring and frame.

Normally, these materials are thrown away but we want to keep these and reuse for the newly renovated space because some of these materials are of good quality and so rare that they are very hard to obtain nowadays.

Examples

We have an old house renovation project going on in East of Auckland at the moment and we have found great timber materials during demolition work.

Our company director Mickey was so excited with these and created unique pieces of furniture on site.

He sometimes becomes crazy about this kind of work; he kept working on site for 2 whole days to complete these works shown below himself !!

廃材リサイクル

改装工事の為、既存の家の一部を壊すとき、多くの場合、木材フレームやフローリングなどたくさんの質の良い材料が見つかります。
一般的には、このような材料はゴミとして捨てられてしまうのですが、私たちJapan Homesはいつも、これらを新しく改装する空間の為に再利用出来ないかと考えています。
昔の家に使われていた素材は、とても質が良く、また現在入手が難しいのです。

 

廃材家具の例

現在オークランド東部で、古い住居を改装する工事を進めていますが、この家もたくさんの良い素材が使われており、それを見つけた岡部社長がとても喜んで、いくつかの廃材家具、建具を作りました。
私たちの社長は、このような廃材を使いユニークな家具を作ったりという仕事が大好きで、二日間ほど現場にこもってひたすら作業をしていました。

このポストの写真は全てこの現場で作った廃材家具です。

I love architecture and design so much that I have been to so many buildings and places around the world such as Sydney Opera House in Sydney, CCTV building in Beijing, Empire State Building in New York, Royal Palace in Bangkok, Houryu-Ji in Nara, etc. However, the residential building attracts me the most. For nearly 10 years I have visited heaps of local and historical homes around New Zealand which I feel the builders’ great workmanship as well as occupants’ life.

From this experience my aim is to design and provide the comfortable and affordable houses with the spirit of Japanese workmanship that people enjoy and improve their quality of life.

In this blog I write my everyday experience of work to show what is a designer’s work and how it goes at Japan Homes.

Any comments or questions are very welcome.
