Simgok Place in South Korea

As the family gets to live spread apart more and more these days, a respected poet and her three daughters with their distinctively different types of the family for their own found a site in a cozy yet high-density village where new and old are co-existed.

In this unique situation, the demand for achieving privacy in the community seems difficult to achieve. Within a hyper compact footprint, the tightness of the envelope gets broken where a most optimized view and privacy can be achieved simultaneously.

Three volumes are strategically divided into four custom-fit designed units within a balance of the southern sunlight and views. Overlapping interior stairs and exterior stairs drastically increase the efficiency of the building with multiple stairs for each unit.
