Text description provided by the architects. The Yeonhui-dong project is located on northwest of Seoul in residential area of Yeonhui-dong. During Joeson Dynasty, it was an ideal location for an urban city. In the neighboring locations there are international schools, Yonsei University, Hongik University, and Ewha Womans University; therefore, it is an ideal location for missionaries, teachers and foreigners to settle.

In Yeonhui-dong there are not that many galleries or exhibition spaces like Insa-dong or Cheongdam-dong, but there are number of art and cultural artists’ studios as well as their homes. In addition, there are small alley houses, shops, famous restaurants, and charming coffee houses in the alley ways. Yeonghui-dong Gallery is part of creating a culture in this unique atmosphere and established itself as a cultural landmark.

Building

The white Yeonhui-dong project stands out from the other residential buildings. The building consists of a basement and two above ground levels. The eight corners have been cut to maximize the gallery space for exhibition; also it created a source for the natural light, ventilation, and entrance. The exterior façade boasts the cream tone, which resembles a blank canvas and the interior space of 496㎡ is programmed with 4 exhibition spaces, 2 storages, a roof top garden and 2 office spaces.

The basement floor is finished with red coat and is divided into 2 exhibition spaces. Main entrance leads to the 1st floor exhibition space that is filled with soft indirect lighting from the trimmed edges. In contrast to the subdued lighting from the 1st floor, the glass ceiling offers abundant natural lighting and views in 2nd floor exhibition area. Also, at this level, an access to the rooftop garden is available where one can overlook the residential area of Yeonhui-dong.

As such the ever-changing events that make up the interior structure—diagonal flows, and different colors and materials of the exhibition floors—offer various spaces for the optimal exhibition spaces.
