A small town near Nakdong River is a place where the client spent his youth. He wanted to come back to his hometown and spend rest of his life in his new house. The site was the deepest place in town and a good place to overlook the town. There was a limitation of using site due to the planned future road on the back of bamboo woods. To maximize green space, we placed the house following the shape of the boundary on the town side. The overall form of the house is ascending from the entrance to the upper floor like a ridge.
The 6th house. A house that should glow high? Jejidong House
The father used to work as a medicinal herb delivery person for a long time and now should collect waste papers for a living after his retirement. But he has hurt his leg and is staying away from work as the injured leg is slow to recover. His daughter who is seeking a job normally stays at home all day. This is a house for this family of three.
The Slow House located in the Innovation city in Ulsan is situated in the rectangular site with 8 meters-width road at the northwest side facing the foot of Mt. Hwangbang. Since it is expected that there will be a lot of car traffics and mountain climbers, it is necessary to design a plan which protects user privacy. Therefore, the design was started with the intention of separating a private area with a public area. First, the shape of the mass was decided as a form wrapping the space and embracing the mountain. And, the lower part of the piloti resulting from the form of the mass is used as a buffer zone where the private area and the public area are separated.
The third house. A house opened to sky at Dongducheon.
It’s a house of three members of family, father drives a truck and delivers mattresses, mother is convalescing at home after the cancel surgery, and a daughter who always care about family, a middle school student. Building a 40-square-meter of single house was possible for this family. However, we decided to build a three – story building with a parking lot for a truck and a rest place for mother. For she likes reading books with daughter. Also, we made a small but solid kitchen space for the mother who cooked on the outer floor because it was not ventilated. I needed a design to satisfy space such as a parking lot, a family room, 2 rooms, a toilet, a kitchen, a study, and small yard.
If you drive a car to the north along the East Sea Road from Pohang Station, you will see the high mountains on your left and the East Sea on your right. Jukjang-myeon, Buk-gu of the city of Pohang, where Apple Farm House is located, is situated at a high altitude and there is Gyeongsangbuk-do arboretum in which the sky and mountains are said to meet. This is a high altitude clean area where soil and climatic conditions are suitable for apple production and apple cultivation is very active in here.
It seems that creating revenue by building a house becomes a trend. It can be seen that building a house with the maximum floor-area ratio and building coverage ratio within the legal limit is a wise way to build a house. A house irrelevant seemingly was placed at the Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do. Although the house is relatively smaller than other neighboring big multi-household houses, the shape of stably standing shoulder to shoulder with them is impressive. The architect hopes this house born by the desire of the client who wanted not to build a house with maximum values, but to build a house for life to become a fresh message to the gray city.
Site and Streetscape – The building is located in the backstreet of the cheongdam intersection, where luxury brand shops, and opulent apartments and houses boast their unique form. It is surrounded by the Hyundai and Gusan Apartment complex and other commercial facilities that are more than ten stories high.

Texture of the Earth_ The plan began with concern about how to represent something of the texture of nature, which has a different character from the scale of the indoor stadium. We wanted the soft red-brown colour of the Youngsangang riverbank to continue throughout the mass.
