Housing by Iroje KHM Architects

Designed to mimic the concave roofs of traditional Korean houses.
The scalloped concrete structure is finished with white aluminium sheets, while large panes of glass enclose an elevator shaft and external stairwells. The building's curving outline refers to the concave pitched-roof structures that are traditional in Korea, as well as the elliptical form of a gymnasium that sits opposite. Terraces cut into the facade are connected by glazed staircases, allowing visitors to meander up the facade to reach the upper levels. It features a metal-framed balcony with a scalloped edge and a split-level roof garden with paved patios and a small pond.
