Praud’s Leaning House is a two-storey residence standing on a hilly site near Chungpyong Lake in South Korea. It was designed as a weekend retreat for a couple of retired professors who wanted a space for research and writing. Its unique design consists of a zinc-clad slanting box that rests on a smaller volume overlooking verdant mountaintops.

The strange dwelling is lifted at its southern edge and features a shaded wooden terrace for contemplating nature. Its interiors are bright and open, and the incline allows for additional floor space, making room for guests and their extensive library. The floors are wooden and the walls are painted white, which emphasizes the home’s refreshing brightness.
