Ga On Jai Home By IROJE KHM Architects

With every new residential architecture project, the surrounding area almost always necessitates the design — mountains, concrete, asphalt, no matter the medium, the artistry of purposeful creation and seamless vision is truly respectable. With the most recent project from South Korea’s IROJE KHM Architects, Ga On Jai, the key principals of the nation’s most pronounced architecture (as well as its traditional language) have materialized in a single, ambitious living space.

During the conception of Ga On Jai, IROJE KHM strove to embody three specific terms that have been passed down from traditional South Korean language: Madang, which refers to an inner court that is prominent in Korean residential buildings; Ru, which draws upon the absorption of surrounding elements; and Cheoma, which revives the traditional architecture language of Korea’s past in a modern cantilevered system. The introverted courtyard of Ga On Jai plays host to a multitude of serene lines, precisely placed foliage and authentic garden stone walkways that mirror the architectural history of the country. Multi-tier walkways ascend beside glass embellishments that run the length of the home’s interior, providing picturesque views of the nearby mountains and city skyline. The ultra-modern living quarters are adorned in pristine wood, polished concrete, and minimalist design elements. A viewing area overlooks the courtyard of the home, dwarfed by a massive cantilevered roof that helps to provide resistance to Korea’s harsh elements.
