Daeyang Underground Gallery And Home In South Korea

by Sam Bobley · May 24, 2012

Architect Steven Holl designed the remarkably creative Daeyang Gallery and private home in Seoul, South Korea. The modern home has a ground level pool that conceals the underground gallery. Three pavilions rise above water-level to provide access to both the gallery, and the home itself.

The geometry of the original building was inspired by a 1967 sketch for a musical score by composer Istvan Anhalt. The design also features 55 carefully arranged skylights upon the roof of the three blocks.
