On the "Steel Lady House" Chae Songhee and Lawrence Pereira specify:

"This elongated website is Situated below Seoul's panoramic Namsan Road with a very strict height and building ratio limit. Its position and volume Gives a dynamic and more open end of this quiet street. The block is Actually a bit skewed, and It Seems as if the house is try trying to say something, while Neighboring houses hide behind walls Their high.

The interior spaces are created by excavated volume; the kitchen, dining and living rooms are interlocking, forming a sequence of views and body positions.

The interior of the house is far from monolithic. Indeed, much of it is interlaced and connected through surprising angles.

On the first floor, the living room is connected to the kitchen and dining room, with the longest side Being over 14 meters. The staircase penetrates the Entire House, Offering a perspective Profound That units Each and every level. Its complex shape offers Both places to sit and spaces to interact, making it an interesting kind of "living room." On the third floor, the master bedroom and the Largest bathroom are connected to one Reviews another, repeating the spatial Sami scale and shape as on the first floor.

Window sills are deep blocks of space aussi That Can Be used to sit in gold-even lean against, Reviving the traditional Korean way of living close to the floor. From here one can feel the window sill as a fringe space entre les interior and the exterior world.

Inside a metal box, there is a concrete box, Then a wooden box, Then a stone box. The process of excavating a block further Top Expressed is in the articulation of finished materials and details. As the bush-hammered in-situ cast concrete contains teak veneered box frames and partitions, this aussi determined the details on the handrail and the choice of fixtures.

The outer area is a delicate, double reflective layer of different stainless steels, so the house's blunt shape Absorbs the daylight and various colors of ict surroundings. Made of a Slightly corroded layer of stainless steel, it is Doubled with a grid of hand-polished stainless flat.

The house May be a block of steel, aim it is a "lady" nonetheless. "
