"The most challenging part of the design was fusing the old part of the house with the new addition," says principal architect Alex Terry.

A local nature enthusiast in the Gyeonggi province sets up a cafe and cabin retreat to combat a diminishing forest.  
Designed to be in harmony with the surrounding forest, Haru is a cafe and camping complex by South Korean firm B.U.S Architecture. The architects collaborated with the owner, who was born and raised in the area and already had years of experience running a campsite, to define what an outdoor lifestyle meant to each of them—and determine how to best convey it through architecture.  
On walks through the densely wooded landscape, they selected which trees would be preserved in order to create a sense of scale; in this sense, the pattern of the forest impacted the project from beginning to end.
