Seoul-based architectural practice, Planning Korea, completed their design for the Cocoon House, an amazing project of inhabitation for the volcanic island of Jeju. Inspired by the cocoon organisms, the team chose to organize the house around a spheric volume with round windows.
The self-sustaining resort that caters for both residential and business aspects. There are three different floor heights on the ground floor. The cocoon zone at the center with the tallest floor height has a courtyard that divides round shape kitchen and living room for gallery. The conference zone on the right complements living room function and a room on the left was created using landing space.
Their cocoon design creates a space like an art piece by translating the round shape of cocoon as an eco-structure design. This seaside condominium provides a self-sustaining creative business resort located in UNESCO Heritage Jeju Island. The volcanic island Jeju where this house is located has a unique forest called ‘Gotjawal’ with mild temperature and high humidity throughout the year that enables coexistence of diverse living things. An open air pocket pool enables swimming with the feeling of enjoying the nature of Jeju island.
The house is a high-end condominium located in ‘Gotjawal Village’, the first phase of the ‘Jeju Airest City’. ‘Jeju Airest City’ is the biggest integrated resort development in the history of Jeju island comprising various resort facilities including shopping mall, casino, hotel, medical center, and new concept of condominiums under the concept of a ‘Creative Business Leisure City’.
