korean architect kim jae-kwan of moohoi architecture has completed the ‘refurbishment (jip-soori) of professor kim’s house’, a single family residence located in seodaemoon-koo, seoul, korea. an axis derived from a nearby road connecting the cities of ansan and seongsan was overlaid upon the established home to reorientate the main entrance, windows, stairway and courtyard. the degraded existing structure was revived with an external and interior resurfacing comprised of a rhythmic pattern of spruce wood planks.
the site is bounded by a black brick retaining wall which generates an enclosed courtyard and singular path leading to the dwelling’s main entrance. an intimate outdoor room bordered with a garden, sculpture and the underside of the balcony creates a private entry space. a wooden staircase leads to a living area positioned on the upper floor where one window resists the imposed axis to provide unobstructed eastern views due to its positioning within a topographical basin. a shallow reflecting pool on the veranda reflects the continuously changing daylight onto the ceiling of the interior.
