The land available for the new building is located in the foothills of the Mt. Dongmang in a small village called Gabaeri in Geoje, Gyeongsangnam-do. This place is quiet and its scenery is really beautiful and, moreover, possesses a charm of its own since it has a sea view. The building owners are a couple who currently live in Tongyeong but operate a fish farm here. They were planning to build a house to live with elderly mother and their daughter and met an architect on the recommendation of their daughter to start to build a little special house.
The design was inspired by the Vietnam traditional structure accompanied by 3 separate spaces and slope roof while using a modern and strong architectural language. At the same time, maximizing the ventilation efficiency by dividing the roof into two parts and having a court yard; then allocating two corridors to connecting the roof. This way created a court yard and big walls. These are porous walls which can bring breeze into the house.
Maggie’s is an innovative charity that provides emotional and practical support to anyone with cancer, helping them to take a more active and informed role in their treatment. Central to Maggie’s offering is making sure this care is provided in a stimulating and uplifting environment, with close proximity to nature.

The Oxford Maggie’s Centre sits in the densely wooded boundary of the Churchill Hospital site.

Our conceptual image of a home is a haven far from the madding urban crowd, away from noise, visual pollution, and a place of retreat from everyday worries where we can rest and rewind. However, what comes first to the mind when thinking of the inner space of “home”, is the notion of “protection”- against all above. Standing for such a sense of security would be the “curtain” hanging and dancing, “symbolizing” a home behind. Creating a shared ground between architecture and the city, in this building as a group of “homes”, the curtains swinging with the breeze, which would call up the image of a warm hearth and home, acting both as a representation of a house guard without and the warmth within, have been used as the façade so as to recall the moment when they, swinging in the breeze along the soft rows of “bricks”, have just stepped aside to let the light into the pleasant space of the house they encurtain. For the brick surface to be easily observable, it was decided that the brightest-colored bricks be used; moreover, brick-covered cubes are installed over darker and rough surfaces of stone-covered background.
Goose Hut, as the name suggests, is the home of geese. Actually, it also implies the people’s habitat of life. As an old Chinese saying goes, geese fly to their home as people returning home. Returning home, the instinct and nature, shared by both geese and human beings, is contained in the name – ‘Goose Hut Bistro’.
Maybe you do not know the Goose Hut Bistro, you will certainly feel her warmth and sincerity as long as you stepping into the restaurant. We set a distinct position for the goose hut bistro at the beginning of our design.
Sauleda, is a century-old company, specialized in all types of fabrics and awnings. They proposed us the challenge of designing a special stand for their annual fair. Studying the history of Sauleda, we were imagining its origins, with people working on those old handmade wooden handcrafted looms, where hundreds of threads crisscrossed. So we asked ourselves how their current clients would react and what would they experience, when they arrived at the fair and found themselves inside of a large loom. Feeling surrounded by threads that intertwine up and down, as if they were participating in the origins and beginnings of a fabric’s production. This is how the main idea and the project of Sauleda’s stand came to be.

H Academy primarily offers hairdressing courses including hair cutting, dyeing, perming etc. and make-up, nail art additionally. The plan focuses on the teaching process and how the program functions. The teaching consists of academic and practical learning. More complicated activities would be performed in practical learning, so there is only one classroom for academic and two for practical. The hairdressing procedure usually separates into two categories, the primary that takes longer duration and the minor that lasts only temporarily, such as the differences between hair cutting and washing. Thus, space for minor procedure could be shared between two practical classrooms and in turn forms a cycle to each practical classroom. In such specialized relationship of sharing, a lab box that includes washing and perming is embedded between these two classrooms. Eventually, there exists an individual lab box within the interior and becomes “a box within a box” as a layered space.
