Office 53427 Architects designed this family house in South Korea. The curving white facade has extruded windows and square perforations giving it a modern almost futuresque look. The private residence is located about 30 minutes outside the capitol city Seoul in the newly developed housing area of Panyo-dong. The brick building is covered both inside and outside with a layer of Hi-Macs acrylic stone panels, which create the extruded surfaces and curved edges. The 2 storey house is light and airy with a base of clad and timber. Architect Kiwoong Ko explains: “I imagined a living space in which the rooms structure would satisfy the needs of the family, while providing the natural connection between the living area and the outdoors.”  An Example showing the rapid transition of family living culture in South Korea from traditional housing to high density apartments and modern private residences.
