“The Jeongja is a space which is unified with nature, liberating its users from the confines of the home. The program of the Jeongja is rest, play, and retreat with the nature. The cliff situated in front of this site has a variety of tress which creates an enormous screen representing seasonally altering moods.
The dramatic levelling made by the cliff and trees inspires awe in us. This became the concept of ‘levelling’ that generates multi-levelled spaces, so that users may enjoy the surroundings at a variety of levels. Each multi-levelled unit conceives various retreat places, diverse levelled interior spaces, the skipped terraces, a private pool and spa and so on.”
