From the architect. Four Facades

Of course, there are facade, right side and left side and rear side in this building. But, the side which has an entrance is called as facade for convenience sake and each side insists on the individualities with different appearance for the city. The left side is facade for the north side. The right side is facade for the south side. The rear side is facade for the east side.

Layers

Several layers were made by digging the lump of cube and empty out it. Such layers are used as the equipment including useful external space, such as balcony, terrace, etc. in the intervals and the equipment of visual pleasure through the sense of depth.

Context

Generally, when starting the design, people find the clue of design by observing the situation around the land. When the clue is positive, it is reflected to the design. But, when it's negative, it's blocked and neglected.

In this project, the land of building is located in the area of city which is changed rapidly, so the surroundings are very disorder. It was confused that buildings of various uses are existed by various forms, materials, colors and arrangements.

So, the strategy of blocking and neglect is selected.

Decently! Toughly! Orderly! I hope that the surface of this building can be a strong peel blocking the surrounding situation. I hope that it can be neat princeliness in disorder.

Balconies of three Types

In this building, the balconies of three types were designed.

When tired by work, it's the balcony to see the city with cigarette alone.

The balcony which is good for the chat of two or three people .

c. The balcony for party

The balcony which is good for noisy... external cocktail party, sometimes, barbecue party.

Location to be used only as a reference. It could indicate city/country but not exact address. Cite: "YI Building / Oh Jong Sang" 24 Apr 2012. ArchDaily. Accessed . <http://www.archdaily.com/228787/yi-building-oh-jong-sang/>

I enjoyed the brief tour and comments. This seems like a very reasonable solution; good void-solid interplay; subtle colors and proportional interest have been placed in well-thought locations!!

Kudos to a fine solution - kamsamnida!!
