The site faces a beautiful landscape to the Bukhan River in the north. In the middle of the field, areas for restaurants and motels to the south and decadent neon lights create a visual pollution.
Customers are a couple who are in their 50′s and 60′s, and have an elegant Korean restaurant that was built in the traditional style of this country. They wanted to build a house for them in the ground for about 5 minutes from the restaurant. They wanted to see the river from a high level, up to a third floor. His friend Feng Shui specialist advised them not to make a door facing the east and not leave the living spaces in the southwest. They wanted a study, a barbecue area and a guest house for his daughter’s family who visit. They also wanted to make a big backyard to play and jump around and under the pool for his grandchildren. The wife wanted a design that give a sense of weight and magnificence.
The house was located in the north as far as they could to a large sunny patio in the south. The guest house was located in the south for restaurants and motels are not seen from the courtyard. It was built like a fence to be located as far south as possible. It seems he was placed in between the thickness of the gate. To see the river from the patio and house visits, the main building was raised on stilts. The roof of the main house was built as a flat roof and there is a green roof where people can watch the river from a higher level.
As a result, the river is seen from every room in the house. To make the home look as big as possible, a balcony of a meter wide made of the same materials from the main building was built on the four sides of the house. The regulation defines a balcony with a meter in width is not included in the total area. In doing so, the interior seems to expand when viewed from inside the building. In addition, because all the buildings were elevated off the floor to one level, the space between the piles can be larger. Black concrete was used for a magnificent style, creating the feeling of the strips used in the Korean-style houses. As a result, the house created an image that is similar to Korean-style restaurant customers.
The plant can be described as the “space within space.” The service space, such as bathing, dressing and cooking, were concentrated in the middle and distributed compactly. A room was located to the east, a living room to the west, and a runner on the contours. To make the inhabitants of the house feel larger space than the real thing, it adopted a line of circular movement rather than a main line. This circular transit line was made with a minimum width to differentiate the intensity of space, but space is not small because the transit line extends it visually to the terrace. The stairs lead up to the ceiling were made as if they were inserted on the second floor, and not stand on the roof. These steps play a role as a point of light, transmitting light to the average level of the house.
