This house is located in an area of Jeju Island in Seogwipo-si, South Korea and is surrounded by a natural and relaxing environment with beautiful views over the ocean and Mount Hallasan. From the slope in which it is located, you can see out to the sea. It’s easy to see that the lifestyle here is unique, relaxing and full of the magic that comes from feeling surrounded by nature. It is surrounded by low stone walls and has two levels. The structure itself is surrounded by trees, adding another element of beauty while simultaneously providing shade and privacy.
Well-harmonized with the characteristics and the natural environment of Jeju, the house is a contemporary house that incorporates elements of traditional Korean residences (called Hanok), such as traditional eaves and wooden floors.
