NAKAGAMI Nakameguro Store / Suppose Design Office

August 19, 2022 Hana Abdel 0

No facade. In a time when the world and its values are changing drastically due to the spread of coronas, we must question the common sense of conventional store creation, which starts with “internalizing the space,” and rethink the treatment of the “outside” by drawing a new starting line. We believe that we need to rethink the starting line for the “outside. In order to solve the three issues of “economy,” “timelessness,” and “brand expression,” the project began with a search for a “borderline between the outside and the inside” based on the premise of a store without a facade.

Seongsu WAVE Commercial Building / JYA-RCHITECTS

August 17, 2022 Bianca Valentina Roșescu 0

Seongsu-dong, which began to slowly change in the early 2000s with the opening of Seoul Forest, has its values in the rediscovery and maintenance of the old neighborhood. To accommodate the growing population of Seoul in the 1980s and 1990s, multi-unit, multi-family households were created to fit as many families as possible. As a result, a three-dimensional composition ranging from the basement to the semi-basement and ground-level was created. On the one hand, it may look crude, but on the other, it makes the horizontal landscape interesting and multi-dimensional.

YUN Pangyo Store / By Seog Be Seog

August 9, 2022 Pilar Caballero 0

‘Yun Pangyo’ has two sides running together symmetrically in parallel. The scene consists of the two facades running the length like a long rectangle in a simple design. While some may feel that there are many advantages to be gained from exposure to the large area, we believe that there are more drawbacks than advantages in the sound demonstration of the brand story and operational directions due to the dispersal of movement and attention. It was one of the other missions that we encountered to overcome this drawback in terms of the construction of space and to have our customers feel the ‘Yun’ identity while making purchases of our products.
