Tennoji Park Entrance Area "Ten-Shiba" Project

GOOD DESIGN AWARD 2016 Gold Award received.

Comments from the judging committee

We were commissioned with the Tennoji Park Entrance Area Attraction Creation / Management and Operation Project by Osaka City, and redeveloped the entrance section, which had not been fully utilized due to aging facilities and other reasons. In October 2015, it was reborn as Ten-Shiba, as a base to provide diverse and free activities for visitors as well as for residents in the area.

Office building business

Expanding the office building business, which used to be centered on the Kansai area, to the Tokyo Metropolitan area and the Tokai area.
We provide safe and comfortable office environments for tenants with advantages such as seismic design, disaster prevention equipment, and advanced security functions, not to mention location selection appropriate for business bases.

Commercial facility operation business

Commercial facilities we manage and operate not only improve the convenience of shopping but also are designed so that local residents and visitors can feel colorful living in a more enjoyable fashion.
We aim to establish a living environment where people can enjoy their days living comfortably and securely today and in the future.

Condominium business

We have established an "integrated manufacturing and sales" system, and conduct all activities by ourselves--from site selection and acquisition to product planning, sales, quality management, and follow-up service after move-in. We have set up a dedicated team for product planning. The team also works in collaboration with manufacturers to develop original housing equipment. We have also introduced our own quality management system to ensure high construction quality and enhance after-sales service.

Good Design Award winner for
eight consecutive years

Winner of the Good Design Award, sponsored by the Japan Institute of Design Promotion, for eight consecutive years. We will continue developing high-quality, superior-design products from housing to city planning, as demonstrated by the Laurel Mansion Series, for example.

Detached housing business

Built-for-sale houses

Our detached housing business has always stayed close to people and towns,
and we have been promoting the creation of housing in harmony with nature.
We continue making housing that is friendly to people, towns,
and the global environment not only with built-for-sale detached houses but also with custom-built housing,
so that people can live comfortably in beautiful and lively towns for a long time.

Urban-style detached housing

Making use of the experience in housing that we have acquired through the condominium business, we developed an urban-type detached housing business that inherited the philosophy of the Laurel brand in various places. We provide high-quality built-for-sale detached houses where you can fully realize yourself even in cities, with features such as a variety of exterior designs that show thoroughly considered designs unique to individual houses and a variety of floor plans to match every lifestyle.

Custom-built housing

"Air wood" is our original technology that satisfies at a high level the four elements essential to comfortable living--"heat insulation performance," "airtight performance," "24-hour planned ventilation," and "air conditioning"--by employing the external heat insulation method that wraps the entire house in insulating materials. This technology not only protects residents from heat and cold and prevents dew condensation, but also contributes to energy saving. Based on the Air wood technology, we have developed an "Air wood ZERO" house featuring wide free space and double insulation, in response to the Japanese government's target to make all newly built houses zero energy by 2020. We will continue to build houses in which residents can live healthy and comfortable lives far into the future.

Renovation business

Based on our proven track record and know-how cultivated through our long experience in housing development, we provide total remodeling solutions to create an ideal living space for our clients. From small kitchen and bathroom improvement to exterior wall repairs, extension and reconstruction, we propose the most appropriate plan for each client. And, we deliver high-quality and reliable services through our integrated management system throughout the project, from planning and design through to construction and follow-up service. We also help our clients enjoy comfortable and enriched lives through various remodeling services, including remodeling for protecting home and family, such as earthquake retrofitting and security improvements; remodeling for energy efficiency, such as the installation of photovoltaic systems; remodeling using natural materials; and universal-design remodeling. Our remodeling services are highly recognized by many customers.

All these golf courses are surrounded by beautiful nature, and are loved by many golfers for their supreme levels of customer service and hospitality.
