This project creates a small village on the hill in Jeju overlooking the Pacific. The site is blessed on all sides: the ocean in the south, a rocky cliff in the west, an old village in the east, and a volcanic hill in the north.
The design was done in two phases in an approach that differs fundamentally from typical, commercially grown housing projects, in terms of balance and harmony between unity and individuality:
- 2 prototypes were developed
- Each of the 6 houses were designed independently based on the client's needs and site conditions
The entire walls and sloped roofs are clad in an open-joint, rain-screen system with Lunawood Thermowood. Each unit has its own courtyard, and the village has a communal space in the center.
