Massive Three-Level Family Residence in South Korea: H House

Located in Seoul, South Korea and envisioned by design group bang by min, the H-House resembles a modern fortress. When developing it, the architects were confronted with a few challenges: “The site of H-House had the slope ground where the front level is lower with about 8m than the back level, which became a problem in designing. Besides this physical problem, the architect had more difficulties with the client’s demands ; to create a house for three generations, a house with good daylighting and ventilation on the basement and the first floor“.

The result is an originally-shaped structure, with functionally separate levels placed in a “stack”. Different from every standpoint, the house is a display of modern creativity in architecture. The project is divided into three floors and a commercial unit for rent on the basement level. All the interiors are defined by space and design minimalism.

    Don’t get this house based in the pics shown. Where do the people live? Maybe one bedroom? no bathrooms? no kitchen? And the basement is an apartment for a tenant?
