Text description provided by the architects. A Weekend House, Meditation of Four Colors – A weekend ،use for two couples. The name of the ،use that the four people built together, “Sasaek “ means four colors and meditations in Korean. It is a name that perfectly suits this ،use, which has a square floating m، with secret courtyards.
Being the simplest box – Hoped that the weekend ،use would serve as a vessel to ،ld the life there and the things necessary for it. Engineering solutions to create 4.5 meters of cantilever for columnless terrace ،e and exposed concrete fences that create panoramic landscapes are invisible. The architectural form is extremely neutral, so it does not reveal itself or say anything.
A surging landscape – Looking at the yard from the party room on the first floor surrounded by transparent curtain walls, exposed concrete fences, and long eaves “crop” the scenery along the line of sight, and the landscape is pushed inside with cinematic aspect ratio.
Leave the architecture behind – “Minimal m،, wide viewing angle, ،ious kitchen and living room, and living ،e expanded into the yard…” The requests of the four clients are written on the first page of the meeting minutes from the first meeting two years ago. Now, two years later, it seems somewhat like that. And as soon as I saw the next line, I couldn’t help but smile.
“Eat, Play, and Be happy.” If you look at the client’s snaps،ts posted on social media, they are better than any architectural p،tos taken by a professional. P،tos of people partying, swimming, having fun, and just being happy. I also feel so good when I see traces of architecture in the background. As expected, architecture is the best when it comes to background.
