This immense modern structure is mostly made up of concrete and glass walls. It was designed by IDMM Architects as a place for rest and relaxation in the middle of nature. It is located in Hongcheon, South Korea and its construction was finalized in 2016.

Surrounded by dense fauna, this building has various levels from which we can admire the view. Whether we do so from the numerous terraces or through the glass walls is up to us!

At the center of this modern structure, we’ll find a pool surrounded by several terraces. From here, we can relax to our heart’s content.

Various concrete staircases connect the different units situated at their respective levels, and the same can be said for areas of the house across the unevenness of the surface.

Its interior connects with the exterior via various glass doors. The décor in the interior is simple and modern, matching the exterior. The large spaces are bathed in natural light, allowing us to enjoy the minimalist decoration in all its splendor.

The bedroom is constructed on a series of different levels, and shares its space with the bathroom, separated by a concrete wall.

During the night, the building’s lights allow us to see its size and beauty. The home, encrusted in the mountains, leaves us speechless.
