Common Ground is the result of an experiment of revitalising unused land in the middle of the city. By applying prefab methods, e.g. producing modules in a factory, transporting them to the construction site and assembling them on-site, it was possible to reduce the construction time of the 5300 m2 building to five months.
In order to maximise the usage efficiency of the elongated rectangular shaped land, the architectural form is based on a center square connecting two buildings.

Joyful Church chose The Beck Group to create a new facility for the church’s growing, vibrant worship and education programs on Sundays and for the church’s many social welfare ministries during the week. The church’s vision was to have a design that expressed a strong symbolic Christian message, but that also used traditional Korean symbols in a fusion of architecture, faith and culture. The location was a 10-acre site in a new town development area of Pohang. This site had many development challenges included steep, wooded hillsides and strict zoning limitations.

A Tail of The Hill
The building has such unique program and location. This facility is served as a place where the park janitors rest, wash and store cleaning tools at the same time. Boramae Park has small and large hills within the park. The site is located at the endpoint of one of those hills. The fan shaped area, which is about two-thirds of the site, is in contact with the road and the rest one-third touches the end of the hill. In fact, the site is in-between the last tail of the hill and the road. With the site given, the park required a shelter for the janitors and the storage for the equipment.

In Gongju city, Lucia’s husband Johan built a chocolatery and named it <Choco Luce> next to <Lucia’s Earth>, a space provided to study and consume tea.
The building is roofed with blue tiles and is situated adjacent from the fence and the garden of <Lucia’s Earth>. As a layer of cement was, with care, peeled off of pillars from an old Hanok (Korean traditional house) that was revived into the chocolatery, the <Choco Luce> yields rather a modern atmosphere comparatively to that of <Lucia’s Earth>’s traditional sentiment. Re-visitation, I believe, indeed is a glimpse of an aspect of constructing property and a part of building history.

Design a house in a residential housing area.
In Bucheon, a suburb of Seoul, there is an area called GgaChiWool. This area, which is also known for a residential housing district, has been continuously expanding. When first visited the site, housing development was already over, and new houses were almost filling the complex. The low-rise houses, the quiet footpaths, and roads to the private gardens brought great attraction of the site. However, most of the houses already built were houses that did not deviate much from the general category of multi-family houses.

Korean talented young architect Leejae announced new project called Lighthouse Residence as below.
This house is a detached house, size of 148.76㎡, built in Ilsan, Gyeong-gi Province.
General floor plan for three-member-family consists of the main living room, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, one dress room, kitchen and a workshop; a detached house of 148.76. This house, so called a Light – House, represents the characteristic of owner’s occupation. The land condition for this Light-House was created by land division of about twenty-house-size. Five houses are already completed, and others are currently under construction. Light-House is aims for something higher than a physical housing where you simply eat and sleep; it pursues co-existing of nature and humanity through continuous relationship via interior and exterior of the building. Predicting this region to be crowded with houses in a near future, Light-House is designed to protect owner’s private life from others’ eyes. The three land sides that are touched by other residents’ are equally divided so that they can be entirely surrounded by the exterior wall of the housing. For the last side, an open view of whole window is installed towards the beautiful landscape, created by the thorough design of terraced heights of the housing complexes. Moreover, in accordance with owner’s lifestyle, Light-House is designed for the frequent use of outdoor space in warm seasons. We hope our residents to have a peaceful and protected space where you can enjoy your rest in an outdoor space and courtyard, separated from others’ view.

UNStudio in collaboration with Heerim have won the competition to design the 32 tower masterplan for the Eunma Housing Development in Daechi-Dong, Seoul.
The approach of the residents, which involves the complete redevelopment of their current homes into a new and future orientated eco design, is seen as a blueprint for resident-driven development projects.

“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.

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. Thus, the main challenge of the project is to come up with the west façade that is energy efficient and transparent.
