I Love Modern Architecture – Waterhouse by Mass Studies: Seoul, Korea

“Waterhouse” isn't over-the-top, but I l really like its intelligent design. The three-storey building includes numerous windows that provide views of the landscape, a greenery area, and sections of the interior are painted with bright colors that add warmth and character to the house. Credit goes to Korean architect architectural firm, Mass Studies, who designed it in 2008. Mass Studies was founded in 2003 by Minsuk Cho in Seoul, Korea, as a critical investigation of architecture in the context of mass production, intensely over-populated urban conditions, and other emergent cultural niches that define contemporary society.
