Coveted Crib: A Multigenerational Mountain Retreat

I love the idea of creating a getaway that's all about family. Those were exactly the intentions of architect Kyu Sung Woo, when he decided to build a three-home compound outside of the small town of Putney, VT.

When Woo was forced to flee his hometown during the Korean War, he decided that he would re-create a family home for his extended relatives when he had the opportunity. Now, the sleek, understated, and pristinely beautiful home provides a retreat for his wife, children, and grandchildren.

For the complete tour,

Constructed from wood and metal, large glass windows and sliding glass doors emphasize the importance of the 11 acres the home is built upon. The acreage, which is marked by heavily wooded terrain and large outcroppings of stone, is in stark contrast to the home's angular, boxy lines, though somehow, the structures appear well-suited to the landscape. Built around outcroppings of ledge, the houses are separated into one building for sleeping quarters, another for living quarters, and a third for storage and equipment.

In an article in the Wall Street Journal Mr. Woo's daughter Ilyon notes that the home is a "four-generation-and-beyond house, with the memory of my grandparents behind it."
