Tosan-ri Guest House / guga Urban Architecture

The site is located in Tosan-ri, an area in Jeju Island with a beautiful, natural and relaxing view of the ocean and Mount Hallasan. Facing the sea, the Tosan-ri house is perched on a slight slope resulting in two uneven ground levels, surrounded by low stone walls and trees. The owner of the land wanted to create ?a house for guests to experience a unique lifestyle? rather than a place that simply provides a temporary accommodation. Well-harmonized with Jeju?s natural characteristics and surroundings, the house was envisioned to be a ?contemporary home? incorporating elements from Korean traditional residences (called Hanok), such as traditional eaves and wooden floorings.

Ground Floor Plan

While enjoying the ocean view, guests would gather around and share meals at the table whereas children would freely roam around the front yard. In the early stages of design, guga was inspired by private folk homes in Jeju Island (called Minga), which have evolved naturally over time. At the heart of the house is the living room (called Sangbang in Jeju dialect) that links to all areas of the house with front and back windows for enjoying the scenery. By embodying the uneven grounds to the design, the house resulted into two sections; the Sangbang in the upper level connects to a room, a bathroom and a staircase that leads to an open kitchen and dining area at the lower level. By adding a third dimension to the flat horizontal layout of the traditional folklore home, the house has become more spacious with a scenic view of the village and sea.
