seoul-based studio planning korea has just shared with us images of their fifth and newest residence to the jeju island development. following themobius house, the objet, the cocoon house and the mineral, ‘the forest’ continues the thematic exploration of the island’s natural habitat. in this rendition,the residence takes after the native trees which anchor themselves by wrapping their roots around large rocks covered in small hexagonal crystals thatmake homes for many tiny animals. in plan, five differently-sized hexagons are clustered together and extruded to various heights. glass facades are coveredin rectilinear root-like vertical elements that recall the very nature of the trees. the 60 degree angle from window to window frames different views of thesurrounding forest, always providing a view to the ocean. on the ground level, the kitchen, living and dining rooms are one continuous space delineatedby the changing roof heights which form a three-level rooftop terrace for the second floor to complement the two bedrooms.
