Just before a Korean pop-song became a global success on YouTube for the first time in history, and Gangnam became world famous as the nouveau riche hangout of the South-Korean capital Seoul, MVRDV was commissioned by Woon Nam Management Ltd. to redefine a building on Gangnams chic Apgujung Road. Even though the Chungha building was completed in the 1980’s it was already outdated in a street dominated by flagship stores. The transformation, which added an extra level, was completed in just 9 months.

By reason of cooperation between two major textile companies, the necessity of a new design office with additional showroom for guest designer team is revealed in existing manufacturing building of the host company. Approach of the architectural team, according to the demand was, creating a perception of “non-belonging” in the space, to highlight the difference between existing function and the new one, also maintaining the balance, between; using the attractive and colorful interior workspace as a showcase, and preserving the privacy of the designers. Another demand that shapes the concept was a multi-functional area which serves as a design office and a showroom.
Architectural team aimed to meet all demands with a single shell.

The internet age. This description is already obsolete. This age is passing quickly. The cloud computing world is now.
When wandering about in the cloud of information, things are not recognized clearly for what they are as each bit of information is not clearly defined in either its characteristic or identity. In the cloud computing world, we can know “IT” without actually touching anything real. If we type a keyword in any search engine, we get the information we want quickly. Sports car, British car, SUV, Jaguar, Land Rover, and so on. In the clouds, we have already discovered what we need to know about the goods we desire to purchase. But they are not yet physical, just virtual.

A display landscape
The ‘Shop in Shop’ concept for Neil Barrett is based on a singular, cohesive project that is divided into sixteen separate pieces. Specific pieces have then been selected and installed into each of the four Neil Barrett ‘Shop in Shop’s in Seoul, and also into the Hong Kong shop; creating a unique display landscape within each store. Each separate element acts a as piece in a puzzle of the original ensemble, ensuring each shop maintains a relationship to the defined whole and with the other Neil Barrett Shop in Shop locations.
