South Korea Zen House with Seven Private Gardens

This South Korea Zen house designed by Moonhoon & Partners is as much about negative space is it is about what’s built around it. The most striking elements are its seven private gardens – one for each room, plus one at the very center of the home. An external catwalk circles around a front garden, which can be opened or concealed with curtains. The house itself is simple, but by no means boring. The highly geometric architecture is like a playground for the eyes. Minimalist interiors are enclosed in a floor-to-ceiling glass wall; privacy comes as required, via a curtain that can be drawn to block out light and prying eyes. The connection between indoors and out plays a vital role in the design, which has a distinctive Zen quality and even includes a pool and a prayer room. To top it off, like a watchtower protruding overhead, a roof top loft offers a view of the courtyard below and the surrounding landscape. Moonhoon & Partners
