Among its many types, residential architecture is extremely limited when it comes to experimentation. Who would want to live like a guinea pig in highly private space in which his or her life unfolds? In order to weigh up the singularity of the architecture of a residential building, the search for relationships between spaces could be a better approach than searching for ‘newness’.Save this picture!First Floor PlanRelationships between the building’s layout and the land upon which it stands, and the way in which it fits in among the buildings around it are to be interrogated. The Guesthouse Rivendell sits on a plot that measures 3300㎡, a size rather large for a house. The architect has been careful, therefore, to position the structures so as to avoid making the house look too small and the leaving the rest of the site looking like a desert.Save this picture!© Joon Hwan YoonPerhaps the way its body spreads out like limbs in every direction, too, is a way of dividing up the large plot and making the outer surface of the building as large as possible. Sequence is an important concept when it comes to this building. Unlike that of conventional house, this building’s upper and lower parts are divided and its long lines of flow extend like unraveling spools of thread.Save this picture!© Joon Hwan YoonThe view placed over this building’s sequence, then, is interrupted and divided. It is difficult to rate it as a new principle in architecture or an experimental home. When you go inside the house and look outwards, however, you will have a sense of how the one thing in the world that we never tire of seeing is the exotic effect of nature and the architecture that mediates it: anew perception of nature as its familiarity breaks up like a glass bead; witnessing nature as it changes at every moment and in every place.Project gallerySee allShow lessDesigning Invisible Architecture: Bird Hides by BiotopeArticlesTicollage City / Costa Rica Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2014Architecture News Share Houses JEHYO Construction & Engineering CopyHouses•Gapyeong-gun, South Korea Construction: Architects: Heesoo Kwak and IDMM Architects Area Area of this architecture project Structural Engineer: CopyAbout this officeIDMM ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGapyeong-gunHousesWoodSouth KoreaPublished on July 23, 2014Cite: “Guest House Rivendell / IDMM Architects” 23 Jul 2014.
