Inside and out combine in Korea home

Tuesday 12 Mar 2019

KDDH designed a family home in the west of Korea making use of indoor and outdoor elements.

The Hangwajae residence was inspired by a previous T-shaped house design created by KDDH.

The family was keen to combine the outdoor space as a living area alongside the interior of the house, so KDDH ensured the sunny yard in the south could be used from the living room and the cool and cosy yard in the north is accessible from the kitchen. 

Connected by stairs from the living room, the master bedroom has a connected study and dressing room.

Further stairs lead to the second floor’s main bathroom and the bedroom for children, which also includes a study room that can be opened or closed when needed. 

A concrete table in the backyard is connected from the kitchen, allowing the backyard to become a barbecue patio for the family, but also an outdoor study space. 

In the yard at the south, four-coloured chairs and walls created a space to look at the house. 

The World Architecture News Awards showcase the best international design in both current and future projects. Entry to 2019 WAN Awards is now open - for further information please click here.
