The basic structure of this house is a modern interpretation of traditional oriental architecture that has existed for over 1,000 years. Based on the Confucian culture of the Chosen Dynasty, the most important space for nobles is the Sarangche, where the Sarangche that welcomes guests is located. Mostly the Sarangche was raised higher than the existing yard to take the shape of a pavilion symbolizing the authority of the residents. After passing through the Sarangche, the main building cut off from the outside is located and becomes the main space for women and the center of the lyrics.
