Baek In-je House, located in Bukchon Hanok Village, is a hanok built during the Japanese administration that showcases modern hanok features. The structure consists of a main room offering a good view of the whole village, spacious bedrooms, a large garden, and an annex building. As it withholds the beauty of a traditional hanok while embracing the modern trend of its time, Baek In-je House is considered to be highly valuable in means of both architecture and history, representing the Bukchon Hanok Village together with Yun Bo-seon House.
Baek In-je House was built from black pine, which was first introduced to Seoul during Gyeongseong Expo in 1907, distinguishing itself from other upper-class houses in its time. Unlike other traditional hanok that separate the main building from the other rooms, Baek In-je House connects the two with a hallway, allowing convenient access between the two structures. The house also consists of a Japanese style hallway and floor mat rooms, reflecting the architecture trend during its period. Baek In-je House is also unique as the main room is partly built as a two-story structure, a style that was never seen in any traditional hanok built during the Joseon period.
