korean architect, younghan chung of studio archiholic, pairs an experimental home with an adjacent office to create a merging of space, promoting functionality. the congregating structures embody the minimalistic approach common to chung’s practice as these models are a refinement of a previous project. within the residence, areas are left intentionally vague allowing the user to assign the room its own purpose. spontaneity in the floor plan makes movement through these variable areas a unique experience. exposed openings ensure a dynamic division of space between the interior and exterior, as daylight and nature are incorporated throughout the dwelling. a vertical terrace and storage corridor, which doubles as a pet cage, further the options of function in the building, as owners discover new uses for their 6×6 meter home.
