The Forest House is a restaurant in Bupyeong, South Korea that was designed by JYA-Architects. Located in the Cheongcheon-dong neighborhood, the Forest House features a stunning facade made from paneled vibrant emerald green tiles.

The facade is a complementary feature that aims to make up for the local building regulations that dictated the structure must have been a simplistic, cubic form. With outdoor dining space and an eye-catching, bright yellow internal staircase, the Forest House by JYA-Architects is a modern design maven that seems also receptive as an event venue.

The green tiles of the facade can each be opened individually in order to play up the pixellated look, while it also offers control over ventilation and the amount of natural light coming in.
