Yes the design of it is lovely, no doubt, but doesn’t the landscaping look like the set of some fantasy/science-fiction movie? There’s something weirdly wonderful about it, and it stands in stark contrast to the cool, nonplussed gray exterior of the structure. What do you think about this modern house?
Photo and souerce by Architizer, Architizer say’s: The melody of San-jo started in a slow tempo and got faster and faster, until it became comfortable to my ears and I fell asleep. The melody mingled with the land I saw, and the building that should be built on it came to me like in a dream, and I woke me up with the slow and relaxing finale by the time I got to Seoul. I thought that the house should resemble San-jo, whose simplicity contains three-dimensional diversity, showing continuous spatial flow as one goes deeper and deeper into the space.
