In Sokcho, South Korea, a house adorned with HI-MACS® Alpine White for the façade and roof, communes with nature and changes its appearance as a function of its environment.
Fascinated by the “festival of lights” offered by nature, French-Korean architect Woojin Lim (of AEV Architectures), who has been working in Paris for more than 20 years, dreamed of building a house in his home country in symbiosis with its environment, that would be able to interact with nature.
He decided to cover all of the exterior of this house with HI-MACS® Alpine White, including the façades and also, intriguingly, the roof. The end result is a majestic roof of pristine white which forms a living tableau and reflects the infinite shades that shift with the hours of the day, the seasons, the colour of the sky and the ambient luminosity.
