This structure is available in various designs that make it possible to support changes in lifestyles.

Let's consider as an example, that there is a living room on the first floor and a bedroom/children's rooms on the second floor when building a new home. A few years later, there will be changes to the family's living arrangements due to children leaving home/getting married, the aging of the homeowners or the cohabitation of two generations of a family/the birth of grandchildren, etc. Accordingly, changes to the floor plan of the living room or a redesign toward a spacious living room will make it possible to live in the home even longer and will also provide further comfort. Instead of people having to find another home and changing lifestyles, the existing home can change in accordance with a family’s transition throughout life. It is possible to support these transitions with a high degree of flexibility if you choose SI housing.

This structure makes it possible to support changes to lifestyles. Various designs are available.

・When changing the wall placement, construction to the floors, walls and ceilings are required, resulting in associated costs.

・This is one type of scenario. The degree of ease in changing the floor plan may vary depending on the actual building.
