korean firm studio_gaon has recently completed 'house in geumsan', a single family residence located in geumsan, south korea
with views of the monumental hills, distant lake and towers of nearby jinaksan. a winding approach presents impressive vistas
of the landscape, finally revealing the dwelling nestled into the valley of trees and vegetation. the facade's wooden partitions
slide to expose large openings allowing refeshing breezes to pass through the interior spaces.

the contemporary design references traditional korean architecture within the timber framing details and paneled door motifs.
a large entrance is concealed beneath a covered veranda and upon entry, a series of rice paper screens open to create an
unobstructed plan arrangement. a ladder leads to the sleeping quarters in the raised loft with an elevated prospect of the living
spaces below.
