Located on a hilly site in Korea with a view of Chungpyong Lake to the front, the challenge for architects PRAUD with this ‘Leaning House’ was orienting it in such a way so that the weekend home received sunlight without sacrificing its lake view.
Lifting up the southern portion of the house not only solves these problems, but also created new space for a family room and a semi-private outdoor terrace. This ‘third space’ overlooks the lake while being shaded by the overhang above.
The sloping aspect of the home provides for increasing intimacy as you move throughout the house, culminating in the family room at the Leaning House’s anchor point. Zinc-wrapped exterior walls, roof, and underside provide for a contemporary, continuous theme throughout.
