Overseeing Oryuk Island and the newly established Marina, the site is located on a spectacular seashore cliff. The objective of this limited invited design competition is to create a next generation resort-style luxury condominium and a boutique hotel complex which capitalize the ‘amazing view experience’ and provide a ‘maximum privacy’. By taking advantage of the site condition, we have actively adopted ‘terrace’ concept throughout the site; by locating terraced residences on a cliff edge, the residents are able to experience an ‘undisturbed’ view of the sea as well as ‘open’ residential park in between the villa towers and terrace housing. We have isolated a single detached villa zone into a ‘gated-community’; thus provide an increased ‘security’ for the residents. Single detached units are ‘Villa Bar-view’ (Entertainment House) and ‘chateau W-Peaks’ (two generation, two entry house). Cluster Housing is comprised of two types: ‘House of Hanging Garden’ (Terrace House) and ‘Casa Cristallo’ (Crystal Cube Tower Housing).
