While technically a home, this building was created as part of ‘Gotjawal Village’, the first phase of the ‘Jeju Airest City’, by architectural practice, Planning Korea. It was designed to resemble the topography of Jeju Island, where it was built, a stunning volcanic formation complete with lava tubes, waterfalls and tropical forest.
The space is intended to serve as a business escape that provides a relaxing atmosphere, promoted by the curving walls of the “cocoon”, dotted windows and warm wood tones. The cocoon can be open or closed to the outside, depending on temperature and personal preference.
The multi-level space separates business meeting areas, like a conference room and library, from living areas. The outdoor spaces expand the overall living space and even includes a pool with an expansive ocean view.
I’ve never considered going to business school, but if I could spend a couple weeks here, I might give it a thought or two.
