Through the use of a uniquely shaped design, the White House by YOAP creates the illusion that the building is much bigger than it actually is. Not just from the outside, but from in the inside as well. Taking up a plot that is only eight meters wide and 20 meters long, it is a 172 m² multiplex rental housing building that has the heart of a little dog that believes its a big one.

Located in Seoul, South Korea, the White House by YOAP is comprised of nine studios, which make up five storeys in all. A futuristic design, it uses asymmetrical windows to help create the airy feel that it prides itself on. The interior is much more colorful than the exterior.
