seoul-based firm architects H2L has approached the lot’s restricting land conditions through a design concept suitable for its triangular morphology. the lot, which measures only 95 sqm, extends four levels above ground, and is complete with a basement and a roof terrace. as the owners, a couple involved in clothing design, wanted to gather their living and working places in one building , the slit house is designed to enclose an office and meeting room in the basement and ground level, while living spaces extend from the second to the third floor.

 

 

the family’s living spaces can be accessed via an exterior staircase that cuts through the concrete house, leading to the first floor where the kitchen and living room are located. the upper level encloses two bedrooms, and a dressing room, while the top level contains a third bedroom and roof top terrace. the building’s exterior is clad in exposed concrete and complete with windows in various sizes.
