This renovation project is surrounded by highly populated residential area and open view of urban green. At the beginning, we discovered existing structural issues, and started design process to untangle structural requirements alone with architectural programming simultaneously. To provide an uninterrupted circulation, the center staircase was relocated and allowed generous, looped path to access second floor via original staircase.
On the 2nd floor, we utilized extended floor space to create western facing L-shape circulation, this configuration connected sun terrace, staircase and rooms. From the outside to inside, from the nostalgic metal facade to contemporary interior living space, users can experience various dimensions of space, multiply senses of this environment and become a part of this living experience of architecture.
This living architecture takes in seasonal breeze, filters light condition, frames urban landscape, absorbs elements of micro nature and penetrates into every aspects of life .
