Jayeon Forest - Wellness & Multi-Generational living
Heta designed a wellness centred, re-forested luxury living development concept along with a designed for manufacture and assembly home system that saves the client time and money on site and allows each unit to be configured to user tastes from a virtual warehouse of components.
Heta have worked with a housing developer to develop a luxury community on a prestigious and unique site in South Korea. The task was to create a special place to live which is in keeping with the shared values of the client and Heta.

Heta has worked to develop a bespoke luxury community on a prestigious and unique site in Seoul. The task was to create a special place to live in keeping with the mutual values of wellness & multigenerational living of the client and Heta.
Heta took this brief and applied it to the given site which is a prime natural location on a gentle slope overlooking Seoul, surrounded by forest but was itself in a state of post light industrial aggregate build.
Heta set out the concept for both a sustainable overall development strategy and wellness focused lifestyle offer with a design that imagines; 'what if this site was re-greened?
It is proposed to replant the slope with as much natural forest and green space as possible, within which a softly winding route through that allows each person on site the feeling of living within nature yet being able to look out over the valley to the city beyond.
Within this naturalised route, dedicated park space zones exist where the wellness facilities enhance the user’s everyday lives and help bolster community activities and social integration.
These range from co-working spaces to luxury gym and spa facilities, with a market hall where fresh food and produce is delivered daily.
Each of these destinations within the development help to create the sense of community and a forest dwelling village that in turns enhances the wellness of each resident.
