Gorami Home / DRAWING WORKS
Textual content description supplied by the architects. A housing space that was constructed on land the place generations have been round for 50 years was newly mounted. It’s a village in Jecheon, Chungcheongbuk-do that’s now referred to as ‘Goam-dong’ and the previous title of the realm was Gorami (Goremi) Village. A married couple is the constructing proprietor and so they had been residing at an residence in Bundang, Seongnam, and have been used to metropolis life as a result of they engaged in lively social actions. Then, the male proprietor needed to handle his aged mom so that they moved to Jecheon 5 years in the past to plant beans and omija fruits on land that’s over 2,500 pyeong in measurement. The feminine proprietor is working a daycare middle and nonetheless lives within the residence, however she involves the Gorami house on the weekends so they’re a weekend couple.
Trying again on the day after I went to the home in Jecheon after their request for the design plan, the household welcomed me within the yard in the course of the daytime in early winter and so they shared reminiscences about their home whereas we loved omija tea and candy potatoes. Whereas we have been discussing many subjects resembling whether or not it’s potential to construct a home that maintains the way it regarded previously however incorporates the required areas, the solar was setting with a refreshing breeze and the daylight got here by over the roofs. I went up the mountain behind the home with the household and we regarded down on the village round the home and appreciated the view.
In trendy structure, particulars have to be elaborate and the extra beautiful it’s, the larger it turns into, however it’s all ineffective earlier than folksy parts that present enlightenment. This home will not be a sort of hanok (conventional Korean-style home) comprehensible to us as we conform to the type of the Joseon Dynasty. Crooked pines have been layered in complicated patterns. No factor demonstrates any elaborate level in the home. After pinning it down, it’s as if I get my palms on a home that may be a mess, however it’s not like that. The second I first noticed this home, I didn’t discover these parts. As a substitute, I solely felt the consolation supplied by the picture of the home and the sunshine and the breeze that steers by the yard. The folksy parts take after the outlines of nature and naturally convey the traces of time along with the temper of the area and the 2 eaves and depth mirror the temper of a particular yard.
The prevailing home had a cluttered construction to the purpose the place it appeared disorderly, maybe as a result of it’s an previous farm. The flat ceiling beneath the roof body was constructed in two layers, with cement and daub, so it was closely weighing down on the pillars. Additionally, the dried mud on the surface was slanted so it was tried to attempt to repair them with structural pipes but it surely partially collapsed. It was not a basic kind of hanok that abides by the type of the Joseon Dynasty as we all know it, and it was a home that was constructed by layering pines in perplexed layers. The lumber was crooked and the dried mud was stuffed right here and there, so not one of the parts in the home have been elaborate. But, the home gave off a cushty and unequalled environment so it was a waste to demolish it.
The yard had a pure and folksy appeal as a result of mild and breeze steered by and in addition as a result of it resembled the figures of nature. An environment was created with the distinctive area, along with the traces of time, and the depth of the eaves and the yard delivered a mild impression. The male constructing proprietor, who spent his childhood within the space, had affection for the previous home as he would go to the home along with his grandchildren. It was extra advantageous to construct a brand new home for the constructing homeowners to dwell there and in addition for his or her youngsters to remain there for a go to, however they determined to rework the home to cherish the view of their previous home. The design of the home started with the collaboration between the constructing homeowners who valued their reminiscences of their previous home and an architect who aimed to ensure comfort and vitalize the emotions of the previous home quite than demolishing the previous home and new constructing it.
I contemplated what to empty out, put aside, and cover-up. Previous homes every have totally different shapes and the ㄱ formed principal constructing and the ㅡ formed servants’ quarters are organized in a ㄷ formed type by surrounding the yard. The association was vitalized whereas modifications have been made within the building. In the principle constructing that used to have 3 rooms, one of many rooms was transformed into part of the lounge, and since home windows have been designed for lighting, it was troublesome to keep up the way it used to look. The lounge and kitchen of the principle constructing have been organized within the linked space of the ㄱ formed area, and a pair of rooms have been designed on each ends. The rafters on the earlier ceiling have been maintained and plywood was positioned over them to put in the insulating materials. Accordingly, white partitions have been put in on either side of the lounge and the kitchen and with a excessive ceiling peak. The servants’ quarters that was once used as storage solely wanted a room and a rest room, so enticing texture and traces could possibly be stored as they was once. The servants’ quarters will be the primary impression of the home met from the road and it was designed in a method in order that it may be used as a visitor area.
The servants’ quarters block out views from the highway and it additionally features as a wall to adequately defend the home. The yard has an open view in direction of the east, so it was a breezy path. The doorways of the storage within the rafter and servants’ quarters, which have been round for 50 years, have been maintained to protect the exquisiteness of time, and the flat stones that was once in the principle constructing have been used as panorama stones within the yard. The unique rafters have been maintained whereas plywood was coated in layers over it for the development. It was meant to put it equally to the uneven wooden and make it balanced with the way it used to look. The ceiling with a wavelike construction was produced by putting in the steel body whereas avoiding the prevailing timber building. Because the exterior ending materials of the roof, pure slate was constructed to surpass the flowery design plan and settle patterns whereas creating it. The 2 buildings which are established dislocated are linked by a roof. The ceiling has a number of slopes as a result of it resembles the ridges of the mountain behind the home, so the ceiling appears like it’s settling down on the home.
We concentrate on the view of the home seen from the road, the scene that begins from the doorway and results in the yard and from the yard to the home, and the view that unfolds from the yard to the surface. From the side of the structural strategies, type, and supplies, previous and trendy strategies mix in harmoniously. By revealing and protecting in layers, the Gorami home that was constructed at lengthy and the potential of the land will join the previous, the current, and even the long run.
