The house hearing the sound of nature

Korea’s IROJE KHM Architects have designed this angular piece of architecture on a hill overlooking GuMiDong, South Korea.  Its name, NOKsSUNGHUN, means ‘The house to think the future of life with hearing the sound of nature’. Not surprisingly, it is perched on a perfect location where owners can enjoy the nature and pleasant sound of the nature and the convenience of the city. The house features a modern outdoor space, flavoring both the exterior and interior environment, and is a true escape from the busy town below – a natural retreat without even leaving the city. It features a central yard – lushly landscaped outdoor entertaining areas – flanked by the main home and its guest house, that comes to a point that drops sharply to the landscape below. The outdoor space between the two volumes and dynamic space of main garden interact through the open framed wall which is a picturesque frame and landscape formative element.

Expansive windows and sliding glass doors opening onto the lush trees, natural wood decking and plenty of well-placed lights. The owner of this house can take a freely, private stroll into an open natural space.

Both of the two adjacent volumes of this bold, angular, almost sculpture-like house that make up the main house and a guest house, face the interior courtyard. Another thing that adds special character to this house is the angular metal roof inspired by the mountains by the rear-side and the context of surrounding condition of the site.
