Atelier.Archi@Mosphere pursues a sensuously and physically perceptible space that doesn’t require any supplementary explanations, and that is, in other words, a site and context-specific space
In this project, they also tried to embrace local contexts and the spatial functions of opticians to introduce such a “site and context-specific space”.
Every Papyrus branch is designed under a different concept. The Bundang branch is in a dense residential area which has very high interest in education.
And from such context, the concept “Library”has been extracted. Yet here, the “Library” means an aggregation of varying contents in addition to its dictionary definition.
Bookshelves horizontally and vertically arranged in order make people believe that the book they are looking for must be there.
In the space, mirror barrisols ceiling give a sense of vertical expansion, and they remind of library bookshelves arranged in a repetitive pattern.
The floor and marble walls which use white as their main color make harmony whit lightings behind display cases and pose a sense of floating.
Most eyeglasses are displayed at eye level, and eyeglass cabinets are positioned to secretly mark the presence of horizontal lines of wall cabinets to make the spatial functions of opticians stand out.
