The large mansion of geometric shape has been recently built in Bukhansan National Park in Seoul, South Korea. The architecture designed the building in the shape of a flower. All its outdoor space has been covered with green vegetation.That was the client’s wish – to be closer to nature.
Iroje KHM Architects company, which worked on the project finished the building of Hwa Hun in time. Translated as “Blooming house”, this Hwa Hun private mansion resembles a full-blown lotus flower.
This unusual bold design was partially dictated by the landscape. The place where the bold mansion is built has an inclined plane. That is why angular facads have got a practical function. They do not let the neighboring houses residents look inside the building, providing the privacy of people staying in the mansion.
Following the client’s request, the architects arranged several open fields with green grass in the middle of the manson construction. The stairways feature real green lawns.
In addition to the external geometric facade, the house interior is also designed as a polyhedron. Interior units have got angular shapes. Huge windows of geometric shape provide the rooms with the best natural illumination.
The company specialists have already designed another house. Its building structure repeats the uneven terrain of the place. The visual continuity of the new housing is possible due to the natural vegetation growing inside and outside of the modern construction.
