Rural house in the Spectacular Mountains of Gyeonggi-do, South Korea

By • Jul 25, 2017

The demand of rural housing is rising all the time, since every day more and more people decide to move to the spectacular mountainous area of Gyeonggi-do, South Korea.

The site on which the rock house was located is also one of the rural housing sites developed in this way. Particularly, the greatest advantage of developing a mountainous area into a building site is ensuring the open view based on the high level as well as the right to the southern light with no interference.

The home is encrusted into the mountain, surrounded by lush vegetation, which allows residents to admire the views from almost every room in the home.

It was designed by B.U.S. Architecture, specifically by Byungyup Lee, Hyemi Park, Jihyun Park, and Seonghak Cho, for two sisters whose hobby is to travel, as well as partake in the art of woodwork.

Their hope in building this home in this mountainous area was to attempt to recreate the feeling they had whenever they traveled and returned to their everyday homes. Just like this hope, a home for them is not only a physical shelter but also the playground exclusive to them and the travel destination of a long-awaited dream.
