About 20 years ago, government held “the house expo” in GangNam and constructed this “expo town” of low-rise residences, and every site of this town were designed by selected architects who had been famous in Korea at that time. The site of “GaOnJai” was one of this monumental town, but the owner of this house who purchased house of this site, has built, newly, after tearing down the old house of this site.
Useful landuse, ecology: To maximize the efficiency of landuse, to be ecological spaces were important requirements, because the owner thought exterior spaces of demolished old house were narrow, useless and circumstance of inner spaces were dark and blue.
Introvert space: To keep privacy and security, to block noise, smoke and other’s eye, introverted layout of this house was required.
Absorbing landscape of surrounding mountain: The living room where has dynamic, picturesque view of landscape of near mountain had been required.
The house which has it’s own Identity of Korean culture has been required because I think this town is representative town of desirable planned residences in Korea.

We all have our favourite books – a story which has filled our heart; a cook book from which we’ve made every recipe and whose pages are stuck together with egg whites and capers (does anyone really like capers?), or a gardening book that has inspired us to transform a patch of weeds into something magical.
Mac and Ninny believe that if you love your books you should label them, and make sure you get them back (if you lend them out), by badging them with one of our beautiful bookplates.
