In response to a Korean client's request to build a home that makes full use of the land of a previous structure and a private garden space, local Korean architecture and design firm IROJE KHM Architects recently constructed a customized home called the Ga On Jai house. It is located in Bundang-Gu in South Korea.

The design takes inspiration from four traditional Korean building techniques: Madang, meaning the inner court, Ru, the use of a structural support system, Cheoma, the cantilever roof and Doldam, stone masonry wall. The exterior of the home features fragmented walls and dynamically shaped roofs that are constructed at an angle.

The interior features spaces that facilitate and encourage the interaction between the inner spaces and the outer spaces that contrast nature and design. The exterior consists of exposed concrete materials, white stucco and zinc plates.
