The Island House (as in “architectural island”) was designed by Iroje KHM Architects. The intention was for the design to become a part of the surrounding context, which consisted of the river and mountains. The home is located in Gapyunggun, Gyeounggi-do, South Korea.
[quote]The huge panoramic view framed with sloped ceiling line that is composed with the lines of stepped roof gardens and the bottom line of the inner court, is the major impression of inner space of this contemporary Korean house. The shape of the mountain type structure composed of irregular polygonal shaped concrete mass and metal mesh was designed to harmonize with the context as ‘the architectural mountain’.[/quote]
