DESIGN


The core of the interior was to keep the originality as far as possible.


The Sea Whale and Forest Whale are all consisted of a living room in the middle of the house and a bed room on the other side. The living room leading to the yard was emptied. The walls that divide the room were demolished while carrying out the interior plans. After the demolition, old rafters, pillars, and beams were exposed which provides the whole impression of the house.


We tried to protect the original structure as much as possible. The rotten tree was replaced with Jeju cedar, so there was no sense of heterogeneity. The sea whale had two rooms and two rooms on both sides of the living room. Instead of demolishing the wall, a low stone wall was built up in place of the existing wall to create a boundary. The room was made up of a bedroom, a sofa, a table, and a kitchen space, and the stone wall was organically connected to the outside, thereby breaking down the boundaries of the inside and outside spaces.


An interesting structure was found at the Sea Whale. It was a traditional toilet in Jeju. We reinterpreted the space and used it as an observatory to view the sea. We put a soft bathtub in our place where pigs used to play and make it a resting place. The Forest Whale has a good proportion to the long and narrow shape. The wall was opened to make one space, but the bathroom space which was already separated was divided into spaces by installing sliding doors. The only thing that changed was the window to view of the sea and a soft tub to provide a new activity.
