Floating House

Location: Seoul, Korea

Architect: Hyunjoon Yoo

While rooftop gardens are sometimes created to accommodate small spaces and a lack of access to nature, the Floating House features both a large grassy yard and views of the Bukhan River. Its elevated construction allows for the river to be viewed from any level of the house, including the third-floor rooftop garden, while a guesthouse conceals unwanted views of neighboring restaurants and motels.
