A Dynamic Korean Home Referencing The Mountains

Scroll

Seoul-based architect Moon Hoon designed a dynamic house for a young couple that acts as a periscope to the surrounding mountains.

The jagged home is marked on the outside by a white volume, studded by variety of windows atop a band of glazed windows. Its interior hosts a series of staggered spaces, including a projection space and inbuilt storage. The position of the house was intended to optimise and reflect the surrounding view of the mountains in the distance. “In my practice I try to have fun doing architecture and designing architecture, and I try to play with architecture at the same time,” says Moon.
