Deep House is situated at the foot of a quaint trail that leads up toward Bukansan Mountain, near Seoul. The most striking feature of the house is its roof, slanted at an angle, which streamlines flawless as walls as a single unit. By opting against conventional use of the concept of roof and eaves and adopting exterior stone louvers, volume of the Deep House is dispersed in shallow depth throughout.

 

Another noticeable feature of the Deep House is its use of corner windows. Once the layout of the rooms was confirmed, corners of the rooms were left exposed by installing box-type windows. Rooms and the size of corner windows were strategically laid out to allow maximum benefit of the spectacular scenery from inside while minimizing adverse impact of chilly winter draft.

Corner windows are ‘window spaces’ but also creates ‘rooms inside rooms’, not separated by any physical boundary of walls. The room may appear as one space, but you can clearly perceive that an independent space exists there.
