The subterranean Tilt Roof House is set amid peaceful mountains and rice fields an hour east of Seoul in Korea. The house shows our understanding and consideration of “Ki”, which is the traditional term for the universal energy that permeates through everything.

地下Tilt Roof House位於韓國首爾以東一個小時的寧靜山脈和稻田中。 這所房子展示了我們對“ Ki”的理解和考慮,“ Ki”是滲透到萬物的通用能量的傳統術語。

Tilt Roof House tries to respect the natural energy flow of the existing mountains and celebrates a primal relationship between the experiential qualities of the surrounding nature and a building. By taking advantage of the steep slope around the site, the house blends with the topography and is partially embedded into the ground, while minimizing the excavation of the earth. The roof is tilted to follow the slope of the hill while disappearing into the ground. It is built with careful consideration of construction efficiency and the surrounding nature without disrupting the energy flow. The mass composition of this house is a result of the adaptation of the existing topography line from the north and the parallel line of the adjacent street in the main access area.

Tilt Roof House致力於尊重現有山脈的自然能量流,並讚揚周圍自然與建築的體驗品質之間的原始關係。 通過利用場地周圍的陡坡,房屋可以與地形融為一體,並部分地埋入地下,同時最大程度地減少了對地球的挖掘。 屋頂傾斜以跟隨山坡,同時消失在地下。 建造時會仔細考慮施工效率和周圍的自然環境,而不會中斷能量流。 該房屋的整體結構是對現有的北面地形線和主要通道區域中相鄰街道的平行線進行調整的結果。

The house also utilizes the sloped roof-top as a terrace. It is punctuated by three square boxes: two recessed boxes and one courtyard box. The two partially recessed squares not only serve as outdoor furniture but also distinguish different programs, such as the master bedroom and kitchen underneath the terrace. The central courtyard allows natural light penetration and makes the interior space more desirable and breathable. The heavy pour-in-place concrete and the pressure treated black-stained pine wood exterior is in contrast to the warm and ambient light created by the bright yellow birch plywood interior. The curvature of the interior wall along the central courtyard softens the pointed corners created by the triangular shape from the living room to the reading area. During the summertime, the wind blows from south to north, inducing air circulation from the courtyard, where the kitchen is located creating cross-ventilation.

該房屋還利用傾斜的屋頂作為露台。 它由三個方形框標出:兩個嵌入式框和一個庭院框。 兩個部分凹陷的正方形不僅可以用作戶外家具,還可以區分不同的程序,例如露台下方的主臥室和廚房。 中央庭院可讓自然光線穿透,並使內部空間更加舒適和透氣。 厚重的現澆混凝土和經過壓力處理的黑色染色松木外牆與明亮的黃色樺木膠合板內部產生的溫暖和環境光形成對比。 沿著中央庭院的內牆曲率使從客廳到閱讀區的三角形產生的尖角變軟。 在夏季,風從南向北吹,引起廚房所在庭院的空氣流通,從而形成交叉通風。
