Rounge, A Furniture brand that began with an inevitable connection to trees – Nestled on Yangjae-daero, the building stands concealed by a stretch of plane trees. Once inside, vast windows reveal sweeping views of towering plane trees, offering a shifting sequence at each level. Ascending to the rooftop of this five-story structure, plane tree leaves touch the sky and rustle in the wind. Greenery envelops the middle floors, creating an immersion in the leafy expanse.

This layered sequence of trees naturally leads one to imagine the roots in the soil.

MinJuKim is the fashion brand of famous Korean fashion designer Minju Kim. MinjuKim’s first showroom is located in Bukchon, an area where you can feel the oldest tradition in Seoul. Bukchon has many hanoks, and Korean traditional houses, and is an area where many tourists come from abroad. Hanok, a traditional Korean house, is generally made of wood, but the building on the site where Minju Kim’s showroom was planned was unusually a modern improved hanok with a concrete structure and a combination of hanok shapes.
