Moon Hoon's newest home design in Jeju, South Korea, reverses the typical line of thought when it comes to the structure of homes. Most architects and engineers work to obscure or hide the functional structural aspects of a building as much as possible: skyscrapers' steel beams are hidden within walls, and homes cover their infrastrcuture with elaborate facades. Moon Hoon's new home design instead puts its structural supports on display, designing them as angular struts that look attractive while still holding up the home's volumes.

The home is made up of three rectangular volumes stacked one on top of another. Each volume faces a different direction, offering a unique view of the surrounding landscape through large windows. The cantilevered volumes are then supported by the aforementioned braces, highlighting the technical challenge of such a building.
