Située au coin d'une rue, la "Wrapping House" conçue par  l'agence d'architecture coréenne Himma Studio est une maison qui s'enroule sur elle-même. Une seconde peau en bois d'iroko habille sa structure de béton, se déployant du sol à la toiture-terrasse, unifiant site et architecture.

Sur la "Wrapping House", Himma Studio précise:

"Situated in the northeastern sector of Heyri Art Valley, this small house defines the corner of the street. Diagonally placed within the site, there is a scale shift from the entrance door to the main window, which is built using perspectival lines in order to enlarge the perception of the space.

The house is wrapped with iroko wooden bars which emerge from the ground, follow the corner of the street and end at the roof. The vertical wooden bars act as both interior and exterior walls, and begin diagonally from the street. The wooden ‘wrapper’ rotates around the structure and becomes part of the façade, morphing from an extrusion of the landscape into vertical line as it approaches the large picture-frame window on the second floor. This continuous wrapping skin boundary shapes the form of the house blurring inside and outside, architectural artifact and landscape topography."
