HWA HUN

Blooming House
“Hwa Hun” in Korean, the name of this house means “Blooming House”

This site is located in the heart of Seoul, near urban mountain “Bukhansan” mountain.
The shape of the site which is irregular polyhedron has been the shape of this house to maximize the land use. We added the topographic architecture on the existing topography of site which is steeply sloped to harmonize with natural condition of the site.

We designed nature–scape architecture “architectural hill”, to harmonize with the context of surrounding mountain and to satisfy the owner’s requirement “living in nature”. To maximize the area of the green garden, all the exterior spaces of this house are covered with green plants.

There are various leveled garden, forecourt garden, inner court garden, stair garden, a waterfall garden, roof garden and all the vertical gardens are circulated each other continuously. Consequently, we buried all the inside spaces of this house in the green nature.

All the skins of this house except road–side skins are covered with green plants and filled with various fruit trees. This “architectural flower” will be blooming and going, as time goes by, with the living life of the family of this house.
