MacGuffin_ the user builds the story themselves while respecting the diversity and intersubjectivity of the interpretation. In Suseo-dong, at the end of Daemo Mountain, two pine trees and a family have settled in for a long time. As the years have changed, the family felt the need for a new home, and so they began to build new types of homes while keeping the pine trees in the same place. MacGuffin, as a sort of ‘making a wrong guess¡¯ device, refers to something appearing as if it is important in movies, but is actually a trick used to distract the audience that is absolutely irrelevant to the plot.

The interior and exterior were linked, and the stairs provide the feeling of strolling around the mass.Save this picture!Diagram 09Nature is exposed through the continuous direction of scenes. The circulation and its consequential line of vision are composed as if they are talking. The user themselves experience a suspense sequence through immersion and relaxation. We liken rational play to abstract form. Various metaphors are hidden in them. The individual personalities of each member are likened to the heterogeneous volumes, and the nature of Daemo Mountain is naturally permeated and metaphorized as landscapes of each floors. The poetic metaphor is expressed as Circulation SpinningSave this picture!© Kyungsub ShinProject gallerySee allShow lessA Home in Bormio / studio wokSelected ProjectsSukiyaki Jyuniten Restaurant / Fumihiko Sano StudioSelected Projects Share Self Stack House / Dongjin Kim + L’eau Design Sungsin “COPY” “COPY” Houses Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/955983/self-stack-house-dongjin-kim-plus-leau-design Clipboard CopyAbout this officeL’eau DesignOfficeFollowDongjin KimOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGangnam-guOn FacebookSouth KoreaPublished on January 31, 2021Cite: “Self Stack House / Dongjin Kim + L’eau Design” 30 Jan 2021.
