From the architect. Mack Architect(s) won first prize in the Korea National Housing competition to develop a new model of low-density residential and sustainable community living near Seoul, Korea. The program requires 102 units of housing. While retaining and enhancing existing site features this design aims to create the smallest ecological footprint possible. The majority of units have their own private gardens in addition to the large shared green areas of the site which help keep temperatures low in the summer. Taller buildings block cold northern winds, while southern exposure for all units provides free solar energy. Buildings come equipped with natural ventilation, stack ventilation systems (through stairways), radiant heat, efficient roof insulation and extensive green roofs to contribute to the overall system of low energy use.

I would really appreciate it if someone can explain intelligently how these color elements contribute to the value of this particular design. I am not an architect and when I photograph similar examples, it would not be prudent to ask a client such a question. In too many cases, it seems, the use of saturated colours is the last resort to attract attention. May be I am totally off base and an ignoramus, but I would like to learn.

Maryam AlZarouni · October 10, 2011

The color combination is creating a contrast with the landscape and neigboring plain white buildings, in which each unit is emphasized and distinguished by a color as a whole the block is creating a residential complex that provides free social energy and natural ventialtion

Well,the use of such colors distinguishes it from the rest buildings. It feels like its popping out. This project deserves to win the first prize for a national housing competition really. Where they have developed a new model for a low-density residential and sustainable community living. Moreover, it contributes a lot to the overall system of low energy use.

I don't think the colours are to bright. You lot must be a bunch of gloomy grey loving modernists...

Sama AL-Tamimi · October 10, 2011

Although the colors used are too bright and unusual, it’s interesting how these housing blocks are distinguished from the surrounding white colored buildings …\t Moreover, these building blocks consist from a complex and simple building forms that are well designed from the exterior, with a functional and sustainable features at the same time…

F.AlZarouni · October 09, 2011

Well, I agree that the color combination is strong...But look at the bright side, no one will get lost or lose where the house was...

It shows!!
