Figure 42. The former home of Korean writer Ji Ha-ryeon, despite being heavily damaged by a fire sometime in the 2010s, remains an exquisite extant example of a culture house floorplan. The enclosed engawa doubles as a hallway, leading to different styled rooms. A non-Japanese staircase leads to multiple rooms upstairs, some more Western-leaning than Japanese. The house is thought to have been built in the 1930s. Source: Photographed by Nate Kornegay, 2015.
