Today’s homeowners aspire to have their lifestyles reflect their identities, while also addressing the aesthetic appeal and functional use. This poses a challenge for architects who have to seamlessly “link” these demanding needs. Simplifying complex solutions, the “LINK Acrylic Façade” under the SHINKOLITE brand, a leader in innovative acrylic sheet manufacturing that withstands all weather conditions, part of SCG Chemicals, or SCGC. The design was entrusted to Jun Sekino, a Japanese architect and the founder of Junsekino Architect and Design. Known for his unique yet simplistic design approach, Jun specializes in selecting materials that respond well to environmental conditions. This makes it ideal for home renovations or new constructions, catering to the lifestyle of modern-day people who want their buildings to better communicate and reflect the dwellers’ identity.

Façades are like clothing that changes the character of a building.

The façade can be likened to clothing for a building or a home, and this is true not only for new structures as a façade can be used to change the character of an older building, too. Just as we do not want to be wearing suits all the time and would like to switch to something casual and comfortable that reflects our true selves, changing a façade can totally transform and breathe a new life into our home. This is the core of Jun’s philosophy.
