MOON HOON Creates a Floating Concrete House Amongst an Idyllic Korean Landscape

Called, somewhat ironically, the “simple house.”

South Korean architect Moon Hoon’s latest creation is the Jeju Island-based “Simple House.” The three-story home is made of a set of stacked concrete levels that alternate to make verandas that overlook different parts of the landscape.

In order to keep the building upright (the area is known for strong winds) there are several angled support structures that keep the building stable. The house came from a desire of Hoon’s client to be more ‘showy and extravagant’ while keeping all the functionality of a more standard home. The original concept for the home was wildly different with first drafts having part of the home underneath ground level as to conceal the size of the home. While the finished concept couldn’t be any more different, it’s still an arresting sight that you can view in the gallery above.
