Ahn&Partners, the brainchild of esteemed space designer Minwoo Ahn, has achieved a remarkable milestone by clinching the prestigious Luxury Lifestyle Award in the category of Best Luxury Residential Interior Design for their awe-inspiring creation, the Wave House in South Korea.
Minwoo Ahn, the visionary founder of Ahn&Partners, has dedicated his career to crafting interior spaces that prioritize the user experience while delving deeply into the architectural structure of buildings.

The award-winning Wave House represents a masterpiece that seamlessly integrates with its natural surroundings, drawing inspiration from the scenic South Korean landscape. This architectural marvel redefines the everyday experience of its inhabitants, with the living area and bar ingeniously designed to merge solitary and communal spaces for entertainment. The guest room’s basement-level bathroom is a testament to thoughtful design, enhanced by strategically placed skylights that capture the gentle embrace of natural light. Even the curved facade of the architecture finds its place within the interior, harmonizing with the overall design.
The primary objective of the “Wave House” project is to offer the quintessential living experience that a single-detached dwelling provides. The house boasts a general yet unique and visceral connection with nature, emphasizing the seamless fusion of the indoor and outdoor landscapes. The design revolves around the concept of ‘space in the landscape,’ meticulously considering the viewpoint and behavior of the residents. Each element and arrangement is meticulously crafted to enhance usability and aesthetic value.
Key highlights of the Wave House include:
- An open kitchen serves as a shared space for guests, while the scullery provides a private haven for the family.
- Thoughtfully divided areas in the basement and shared living room catering to the owner’s preferences, enhancing usability.
- A grand 3-meter-high front door equipped with high-performance hardware, designed for ease of use and a delightful entry experience.
- Motorized blinds allow users to customize lighting and reduce repetitive housework, promoting stability and aesthetic value.
