Cafe SAPOON SAPOON in Seoul, South Korea by Betwin Space Design

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

Article source: Betwin Space Design

“Two years for gathering energy of the earth with the sounds of water, wind and human footstep, and six years for looking after ginseng. Six-year-old Red Ginseng nourished by the devotion of KGC(Korea Ginseng Corporation) for eight years. ”Opened on the first floor of KT&G (Korea Tobacco & Ginseng Corporation) Tower last August, Café Sapoon Sapoon expresses the advertising copy of Cheong-Kwan-Jang implicatively. Sapoon Sapoon is a compound word of Saponin, main ingredient of red ginseng, and Spoon, a tool to deliver taste and nutriment of food. As Sapoon also means ‘a figure of light and careful step’ and ‘light and refreshing state of body and mind’ in pure Korean word, people can feel refreshing scenery with light beverage. Sapoon Sapoon is a casual space created by KGC in order to be free from the perception, ‘Red ginseng is nothing but health functional food’, while keeping credibility of company and its quality-first spirit. Betwin Space Design grafted traditional ideology of Cheong-Kwan-Jang on this café modernly.

Article source: AND(Architecture of Novel Differentiation)

Site + Desire

Louverwall is for a couple with five cats. The husband is a music enthusiast who manages the cafe where he enjoys music, coffee, and beautiful space. He wants the café space to be vertical, transparent, and dynamic. They need a small residence on the 2nd and 3rd floors consisted of a bedroom, a living room and a small kitchen. The site is located in the newly developed mixed-use building district in Paju. The plot is surrounded by other buildings on its three sides; it is only open toward due west.

Mug Hakdong in Gyeongsangnam-do, South Korea by Hyunjoon Yoo Architects

Friday, September 30th, 2016

Article source: Hyunjoon Yoo Architects

Complex surrounding context + Mountain in the distance

The given site is located in front of the bus stop on the main street of the Mondol beach, in Geojae island. There is a stunning horizon of Mondol beach along the Geojae seashore, 100 meters ahead of the site. However, this stunning view can only be captured from the higher level above the ground, from the limited view frame created by the gaps in between the existing buildings. The site is basically surrounded by the randomly constructed accommodations. Yet, the picturesque view of Moja Mountain over those buildings is considered as our targeting landscape.

Korean Dandelion Farm in Chungcheongbuk-do, South Korea by Archihood WXY

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

Article source: Archihood WXY

“Evoking a sense of space“

The building is hidden by the silver-grass forest. The whistle of the wind from the sliver-grass leads the way. At the end of a leafy and curved pathway, you can meet a heavy wooden door. The black bamboo welcomes you through the spaced wooden fence, and natural sunlight filtering through the louver, enveloping the dark entry space. Walking through this entry space, you can see the peaceful front courtyard, covered with Korean fine soil.  Experience of dark and light: this is what triggers your emotional experiences in this space. When you enter the front courtyard, you can see the forest valley through the wide open Farm café. The sense of nature from the valley stays in the farm a while, and passes through the wooden fence.

Busan Opera House in South Korea by moh architects

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Article source: moh architects

The new ‘Busan Metropolitan Opera’ sits at the intersection point of the two bridges leading up to the competition site, tying the Opera into the city fabric while at the same time interweaving it with the picturesque waterfront promenade. The ensemble of opera and multifunctional theater further divides the site into a series of differentiated territories, each of which fully draws on the potential of a site suspended between city and sea:
