Korean Design Group Builds H-House for a Family of Three GenerationsPhotography by Joonhwan Yoon

Confucian living is still very much practiced in Korea, but living under the same roof as your parents and grandparents doesn't have to be as bad as it sounds. Korean design group bang by min presents H-Housemostly comprised of living quarters, but home to a beauty salon on the first floor. Designed by Sae Min Oh, founder of the bang by min design group, the home houses three generations in spaces that are transformed with linked and separated floors, a folding door, and a movable wall. According to the firm, H-House is designed to allow the family to "live together and privately at the same time, in order that they could behave individually while being together." Seems perfect, right?
