Architecture

Located in Miami County, a truly unique Korean Hanok home with a reimagined modern twist has been designed to allow visitors and family to experience and be enveloped by the feel of the owner’s native culture.  Korean Hanok traditional homes bring the nature inside using light and authentic materials allowing its occupants to coexist peacefully with the simplicity, beauty and spirit of the natural world.

The most unusual aspect is the 300 sq ft interior courtyard.  The intention of the design is to enable light to enter in the home from all sides and directions.  The rooms are partitioned with giant floor to ceiling sliding room dividers to create comfort when the spaces are opened to each other in a traditional sense.

There is a tremendous focus on timber elements as it is a traditional part of Hanok.  The natural wood brings texture and the warmth throughout the rooms.  The exterior of the home is designed with stucco and wood timber to continue the harmony with the surrounding environment   Hanok windows are designed to recreate the feel of rice paper partitions in a modern fashion at the entry to convey a traditional welcome greeting.  A roof deck incorporates a sky deck at the highest point of the home. The homeowners want to view the night sky with a continuous flow to the stars without any distractions or light pollution.

An indoor pool and wellness spa includes a saltwater float known as a sensory deprivation chamber. It is most often used as a method for relaxation and to boost creativity. It can allow one to engage in a deep meditative state, regardless of meditation experience.

Because of the traditional principals and unique personalities, the clients have been an absolute joy to work with.
