Traditions And Modernity Combined Together In A Cool Korean House

This traditional house is located in Southern Korea and belongs to Hongnam Kim, art historian, a professor at Ewha Womans University. She wanted to create a house in the form of a hanok, the traditional wooden structure dating back to the Joseon dynasty in 1392. But inside she wanted to see a mixture of traditional and modern inside. And here’s the result. The house is divided into two parts: an anchae (owner’s residence) and a sarangchae (a guesthouse). Modern bathroom, kitchen appliances and furniture look amazing on the background of traditional walls and wooden doors. It’s an amazing mix of modernity and history in one!
