The ingredient of this house is nature around four distinctive seasons. Floor to ceiling glass planes in the front facade offer panoramic views of the lake changes in every season. These identical window divisions reflects the evenly divided space plan and the structure itself -a polished concrete cast with white pebbles.

Spring
Dandelions and forsythia bloom everywhere on a quiet mountainside. In May, other flowers open on the Korean nut pine trees, a largely distributed in this region. Due to the great temperature difference between day and night, dawn mist rises near the shore of Cheongpyeong lake in an early morning, which presages a fine day.
 

Summer 

The sun gets stronger and green in nature becomes more vivid. The crying sound of cicadas echoed among the mountains and hills gives a sense of distance and spatial depth. It is the most beloved season for outdoor activities and so the longest day of all seasons.


Autumn
The sky is clearer and higher than all seasons. The mountains are covered with foliage all over, which is greenish, becomes golden and finally turned out red before the fall. It offers the most spectacular scenery among all seasons. 

Winter
All of a sudden, everywhere is covered in white. The temperature drops below minus 10 degrees and the frozen Cheongpyeong lake becomes pale and quiet. The roar of glaciers occasionally banging against each other is the only sound which breaks the heavy silence in the lake.
