Text description provided by the architects. The densely populated residential area on the inner side of Dosan-daero is a site in which civil complaints clash and height limits are rarely respected. The mass was folded according to the slopes of the stairs, to avoid a steeply set mass. By decreasing the mass as it ascends along the straight stairs, skylights were placed at each level. The building’s purpose is as a recording studio, which has instigated serious complaints by local residents restricted opening up the outer wall, with its closed figure naturally leading to a selection of bricks.Though red bricks were chosen in accordance with the surrounding multiplex housing, by using surface cutting of used bricks, an old faded look was achieved.

 The recording studio on the second and third floors was sedigned to have no columns by using the windowless outer wall as a structure, and the volume containing the office on the fourth and fifth floors was built with a light transparent box to relieve the weight of the trans structure. The upper volume is supported by V-shape steel column in the ground floor car park, transferring the weight to the underground reinforced concrete column.

 By inserting a commercial building in the block of multiplex housings, a nuanve of change was initiated by partially combining the light gestures of steel structure on the familiar brick building.
