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.
