■ About the energy saving measures of “MUJI House”

Since its release in 2004, MUJI’s residences have adopted the highest thermal performance in all buildings that exceeds the next-generation energy-saving standard of level 4 at the time, as well as the long-term excellent residence certification system (2009), since then high energy-saving performance is required , due to its high thermal performance originally in new systems such as Regional Residential Brand Business (2012-) and Regional Residential Brand Business (2012-), it has received standard certification specifications at no additional cost.

However, due to global environmental and energy issues, our Japanese awareness and demand for insulation and energy-saving performance of houses have changed, and we plan to popularize ZEH (Net Zero Energy House) in 2020. The Ministry has announced the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.

In 2015, Muji’s house looked to the future and thought it was time to aim for the best performance that can be achieved now, so the double insulation + triple glass window frame was standardized. We achieved insulation levels of approximately 30% above the ZEH (Net Zero Energy Home) standard that was the “recommended” standard at the time.

At present, the government has set the goal of ensuring the energy-saving performance of new houses and buildings after 2030 to meet the ZEH/ZEB standard level, and requires to accelerate the improvement of the decarbonization rate of houses.

Equipped with “the best insulation I can think of right now” walls, roofs and windows, MUJI’s homes will continue to be the front runners for comfortable, environmentally friendly homes for many years to come.

■ The concept of “Muji Home”

Muji’s house exterior insulation has a double insulation standard specification that combines exterior wall insulation and infill insulation, and we did it. (average value of buildings delivered in 2021)

In addition, all buildings of MUJI’s houses have seismic performance of “seismic grade 3”, and the SE construction method adopted is “SE” for columns and beams of “structural laminated wood”, and the strength is obvious. Enable Structural Calculations to numerically demonstrate the durability of structures. In MUJI’s house, each building to be constructed is individually calculated for the structure. By simplifying the appearance and architectural shape, a one-bedroom space with few partitions is created, and the space composition can be flexibly changed according to the changes in the occupant’s lifestyle and family composition.
