The GaOnJai Home was designed around a “Madang”, which is a traditional Korean inner court. The luscious outdoor space not only adds some living scenery but also creates a secluded, introverted space for the family to enjoy. Designed with many levels to adapt to the existing topography, the “Madang” allows inhabitants to stroll in and out of the house through various entrances.
A curved cantilevered roof or “Cheoma” protects the house from rough weather and interiors from excessive sunlight, while the oval patterned concrete wall is a modern take on traditional stonewalls. Grandiose, modern and yet traditional, we love this Korean home with its vibrant green core.
