Moonbalsso’s Concrete Pacific Residence
Introducing Pacific Residence, an 8-room multi-story residence located in Seogwipo, South Korea – the second largest city of Jeju Island, renowned for its natural beauty spots and balmy weather. Designed in 2022 by Moonbalsso, the residence was built to the client’s vision of bold angular shapes with a distinct muscular style – ready to accommodate a future family of five.
The unique design of the residence creates a wave-like stacking of 8 different sized rooms, proceeding up a slight hillside with views of the Pacific Ocean in the distance and Halla Mountain as the backdrop. The building’s facade is a combination of wood plank imprinted exposed concrete, a material perfectly suited to the harsh windy weather and abundance of basalt rocks of Jeju Island, making it look as though the building has been standing there for a long time.
