Since its founding in 1970, GL Home has striven to create homes where customers can enjoy their lives, based on the belief that “Japanese homes lack the concept of enjoyment.” GL Home values ​​“likes and dislikes” more than “good and bad”, and enjoys life and living with free ideas, and lives a life that values ​​“likes” in the outdoors, fashion, design, hobbies, culture, etc. We provide homes that make this possible.

Mr. Iwakiri is a leading expert in incorporating the California lifestyle into housing and proposing “California Style” to the housing industry. This project was born because Mr. Iwakiri’s thoughts on home building and GL Home’s ideas of “enjoying your home” and “building a home that values ​​your likes” that have been held since its founding coincided. “THE HANGOUT COTTAGE” project is aimed at people who want their “home” to be a play space that incorporates their own hobbies, and who want to create a more tasteful home by incorporating living infrastructure and play. We propose a new way of building a home for adults who appreciate wealth. GL Home x Kenrock will collaborate with the aim of designing a base (HANGOUT) that is filled with the values ​​of how to have fun, regardless of age or gender.
Our design focuses on the ability to gather with friends and family to share the joy of play and hobbies, and we aim to create a rich space like a hangout where you can feel nature and enjoy your hobbies, taking into consideration the location and environment. .
