A house that expresses the regional characteristics of Korea and the Korean spirit. It shows how important it was to properly establish and control the internal and external relationship between the space inside the house and the nature outside the house through various openings in the hanok. The internal structure of the roof is framed by weaving wooden members, and the rafters are slantedly covered on the roof to form a slope. The eaves at the bottom of the roof protrude longer than the wall line to adjust the sunlight in summer and winter to the angle of incidence and prevent rainwater from hitting the wall. As the size of the house increases, the length of the eaves must be lengthened, so the wood structure technology that supports the length becomes an important structural technical part in architecture. When looking at the house from the outside, the weight of the sloping roof is visually emphasized, giving the impression that the hanok is a ‘house with an emphasized roof’.
