Although there are a lot of mass-produced homes being erected around the world to satisfy the needs of growing populations, I love seeing homes like the Hyunjoon Yoo Floating House that cater to specific, individual wants and needs. Designed for an older Korean couple, it boasts details that are important to the two's lifestyle.

Located in South Korea, the Hyunjoon Yoo Floating House faces the Bukhan River in the north. Due to a great layout and height (thanks to being rested on short stilts), this river can be viewed at any point in and around the house. Therefore, this residence really interacts with its surroundings.

The Hyunjoon Yoo Floating House also mimics traditional Korean decor, which ties into the design of the couple's Korean restaurant, creating a nice symmetry in the duo's lives.
