HouseWING is located in Seoul, designed by South Korean design firm AnLstudio. The house is located in a typical 45 years old Korean residental unit. It was renoveted and designed for an artist as a home-working space.
“Inspiration in both the name of apartment, Nakwon – meaning ‘utopia’ – and the client’s attitude for life, led to the design of the distinguishing purely white feature shaped like a wing of an aeroplane. The aim for the wing is to differentiate between two rival life patterns in a confined space. The target is to maximise the spatial perception by wrapping it with unique lighting embedded in the ceilings and walls of working area.”
