Introduction
The House of Choi Seung-hyo is a traditional residential building located on the southeastern slopes of Yangrimsan Mountain. Choi Sang-hyeon was an activist who offered his attic as a place of refuge for other activists. Since the building was constructed in the 1920s, it offers a valuable glimpse into the architectural style of Korean houses at the end of the Japanese colonial period.

The rectangular building is open to the east, has 8kan rooms in the front and 4kan rooms to the sides (kan: a traditional unit of measurement), and is graced by a traditional ‘paljak’ roof.
