Cottage living-Korea style

This house is built with traditional Korean techniques. I love the wood and the calm feeling it makes. The floors are heated in the winter and during the summer the windows open up. We met the owner of this house, an elegant woman in her 60's who seemed very worldy and wise. Very inspiring.
 The view over Seoul

 One of my favorite things about these houses are the serene private spaces inside. I think we could use a little bit of this in New York.
 Incredible construction

 This room opens up during the summer.
