JS Corporation’s Company Building in Gangnam, South Korea by Y Group

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Article source: masilwide

We wanted to express the facade of the building based on the image of the respectable midsize company. The square window, which was an existing window of the officetel, was used as a motif of the exterior of the building as it is. Because it was considered that the detailed elevation design with the restrained elements of the building elevation was more suitable for the fashion company than the building with the flamboyant gesture. Form of the building before the renovation was a common building built in the 90s in Gangnam, which was built in the days when the energy saving designing standard were not clear. The project was planned with a significant challenge that is from the design to improvement of energy performance. First, the glass finished staircase has been inefficient due to the greenhouse effect, which has led to a mass study of architecture from increasing the percentage of the wall of the existing staircase. As a result, facade that was planned stone finished staircase with the minimum fenestra and dignity was finished at the corner intersection with a presence.

The House of Prajna in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea by studio_GAON

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Article source: studio_GAON

<The House of Prajna> seems like a vessel heading for the woods, embraced by the forest, with the pentagon shape of building site reminding of that of ship. On the bow of ship shape, a persimmon tree over hundred year old branches its arms toward the large sky with hollowed trunk.  Although this house is a result of intentional design, I feel like it is already been completed by thousands of interactions of invisible components. Every time I visit, I feel like appreciating the work of someone else’s.

Red Mirror Strips in Seoul, South Korea by MasilWIDE

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

Article source: MasilWIDE

In Yeoksam-dong 618-2, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, there is a two story building covered with layers of horizontal mirror strips and vertical red transparency strips. Overlapping transparency and reflection, these layered strips of different materials create a strong visual illusion. Walking along the narrow stair passage between the layers, the visitors may feel dizzy not only because of the optical repetition but because of the trembling of the strips. The stair passage links the ground level to the roof deck changing the ordinary views of typical commercial blocks in Seoul to a phenomenal experience.

Double house in Ulsan, SOUTH KOREA by On Architecture

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Article source: MasilWIDE

The house is located on a sloped corner site in the Innovation City, and it’s looking at a distant mountain in the northeast. The site is sitting at an intersection of a mixed-use housing block and a general dispatched housing block. To use the existing slope, the floor of the retail area on the 1st floor is divided from its corner into two in a diagonal direction, and the level of those two floors are set differently in order to maximize spatial flexibility. For the house on the 3rd floor, its access, entrance and living room are designed to offer a view to the mountain in the northeast. The living room is placed on a space where the mass is segmented in two directions so that it can be linked with a deck outside and also take advantage of natural ventilation all the time.

Nonhyun Matryoshka is located in a residential area of four to five-story buildings, situated deep within Gangnam’s main street. Existing housing developments usually require closed boundaries to prevent an invasion of privacy. However, new neighbourhood living facilities desire demarcation in order to populate each domain with its own distinctive feaqtures, as these spaces are made up of many diverse programmes. As such, it has been planned to mark this duality.

Article source: Daniel Valle Architects

Suncheon Bay is famous for its natural sceneries. The privileged location in the junction of the Dong and Isa streams is house of the widest reed bed in South Korea. Among the world’s wetlands, Suncheon Bay is widely known for attracting the largest number of rare birds. Suncheon Bay represents the best of the region and has been always the epicenter of tourism.

We would like to propose for the Suncheon Art Platform competition an urban reinterpretation of the natural sceneries of Suncheon Bay.  We wish to connect the collective memory of the bay with a new cultural and urban life in the city center of Suncheon where Culture and Nature become the raw materials to fabricate a new creative platform for citizens to enjoy and express themselves.

DSSI Elementary School Renovation in Seoul, South Korea by Daniel Valle Architects

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Article source: Daniel Valle Architects

The project focuses on three main strategies to address the school’s requirements:

1. Maximize space. The space was not properly used since the corridor that connects the main door with the other floors was only used sporadically.

2. Equal size. The two classrooms were very different in form and size due to the plan’s layout. The target was to propose a new configuration that gives equal spaces for both.

3. Sharing activities. The new school’s philosophy has to do with sharing spaces to study and providing diverse number of possibilities to educators to perform new pedagogical practices. The two rooms in the existing condition were duplicating spaces for playing, studying, meeting, sharing, etc.
