jeju cocoon house

Located on the UNESCO heritage site of jeju island, the seaside condominium, 'jeju cocoon house' designed by seoul-based 
practice planning korea is a hybrid interpretation of volcanic topography and the cocoon of a living organism. 
placed within the center of the home, a spherical element appears as though it has been generated by organic processes, 
with the physical properties of a naturally formed eco-structure. rounded ceilings and walls blur the typically formal enclosure creating 
an interior setting with unique perspectives to observe for art pieces, contain a library or hold parties. circular windows may be 
opened with fluctuating temperatures.
