Entirely Renovated in/out Design of Old House by award-winning Architect (prof, Kim,Sheunghoi / Seoul National Univ.)

일제강점기의 오래된 적산가옥을 섬세한 균형감으로 재해석한 공간. 저희 하우스는 서울에 산재한 적산가옥에 대한 재발견 및 미래유산의 가치로 보여준 의미있는 스테이입니다. 후암동 골목 안에 위치한 80년의 세월을 버틴 낡고 오래된 집은 이 곳에 대한 가능성을 읽어낸 지기와 뜻을 함께한 김승회 건축가 및 다양한 아티스트와의 협업을 통해 과거의 켜에 대한 가치를 겸손하게 재해석하여 완성했다.

골목 안 축대 위에 ‘N’이라 적힌 조명을 따라 ‘눅’의 내부로 들어오면 작지만 편안한 느낌을 준다. 1층은 명상과 사색의 공간으로 사용하며, 경우에 따라서 침실로도 가능하다. 2층은 널찍한 아일랜드 주방공간과 함께 편리한 다이닝 공간으로 구성되어 있습니다. 3층은 안락한 침실과 아늑한 휴식공간으로서 3,5m의 높은 천고가 주는 시원한 공간감이 특징인데, 박공지붕 형태로 확장된 3층의 욕실 공간은 새로움을 더하는 반전 공간이라는 역할을 가지고 있습니다.

한국의 독특한 온돌 문화를 체험할 수 있도록 구성한 ‘리스톤’의 돌침대와 Artemide의 조명 그리고 60년 된 프리츠 한센의자 등 공간뿐만아니라 구석구석 놓여있는 소품들 또한 이야기를 담고 있습니다. 또한,서울의 대표적인 남산 성벽 등과 남대문 재래시장 뿐만아니라 후암동 재래시장등 마을과 스며들어 있는 특별한 스테이를 경험할 수 있습니다.

The stay in the house has been extremely comfortable and the host is very hospitable, from giving a house tour to listing a few excellent restaurants nearby( one of which we tried--- indeed delicious). Only a slight problem of having slightly steep stairs due to the inherent structure of the house, so families with elderly may want to take note. Overall a very good experience!!!

Great house with obvious pride of ownership. Sunny and Young were terrific hosts, providing great recommendations for transportation and restaurants. Sunny was also nice enough to meet us at the hotel and bring us to the home. Young also provided an awesome introduction to Seoul the day after arrival. The home is in a nice central location very close to Seoul Station and Namdaemun market. It is a little small by western standards and the access to the upstairs area is a little tricky, but very cozy and functional for our purposes. We felt very welcome, thank you Sunny and Young for sharing your home with us for our visit.

Right from our initial contact and prior to booking Sunny answered all our questions promptly and accurately, once booked Sunny continued to answer all our questions and nothing was too much trouble.
We landed mid afternoon and met Sunny as agreed off the airport bus, a short walk from the bus stop and we were at the house where we met Young, Sunny's partner.
Young and Sunny gave us a tour of the house, Young's enthusiasm and love for the house shone through and we learnt all about it's history and subsequent modernisation.
The house itself is ideally situated to easily explore all of Seoul, the subway is approx 5 mins walk away, Namsan Park a brisk 15 min walk and within half an hour you can easily be south of the River Han.
I've no hesitation in recommending a stay in Nook Seoul and wish Sunny and Young all the best.
