Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
In contemporary architecture, the word traditional and modern is not a contrary matter, instead it both can combined into a new concept of design. Korean-based firm IROJE KHM Architects have recently completed a contemporary house design Lim Geo Dang which blend both modern and traditional style.
This modern house for an author and publisher based its spatial design concept on dramatic circulation, which was characteristic of traditional architecture in Korea. The circulation of ancient Korea continues infinitely in space, overlaps and penetrates each other asymmetrically, and finally, produces several picturesque frames by surrounding nature and building.
“Madang” is the open courtyard which is found in traditional Korean House which this house must have. It is a place for the residents to witness the nature. Eight places of “madang” located in different levels were planned to produce attractive and interesting drama of spaces. All the major spaces of this house were designed to have a direct relationship to “madang”.
A heavy mass of woods flying over the roadside was expected to evoke the “flying” image from traditional architecture were used in this project. T-shaped metal ties used to fasten wooden members to each other, over hanging doors, and steel rods which hang out the doors are the traditional elements; however, they can be modernized and recall past as the same time.
