Text description provided by the architects. The project site is located in the old town streets, Daebong-dong, Jung-gu, Daegu. In 2010, the composition of the surrounding streets as singer Kim Kwang-Seok, many young people have come to enjoy on weekend. While voluntary lively cafes around the community center, a new street cafe was formed.
Floor area ratio is 220% legal. A four-story building could build up to 546㎡. Client is, however, want a total floor area of around 200㎡ building. Rental income is not the purpose, and client is planning to operate a bakery and cafe directly. So it is designed with one-third the size of a legal that to blend well with the neighborhood atmosphere of the building.
If the franchise is a large floor area is secured first. But such thinking is not right where each neighborhood self-evident that colors. So a large floor space divided into several small areas. The basic direction was thought to be skip floor. Two-story building, but was actually a space consisting of four layers. In the same layer, a exposed concrete structure wall to the medium was again divided into two parts.
Floor and ceiling finishes gave a contrasting effect. The ground floor was constructed in a herringbone pattern wood floors, ceiling beams and a concrete slab so that the finish was just exposed. Second floor by floor finish concrete polishing, concrete was to feel the texture itself. Conversely, the ceiling was finished with wood louvers. In addition to installing skylights, during the day were enough natural light to enter the room.
Korea has many unique city that is distinctly his own color, such as the world famous city. In addition, there are many historic villages. The past few decades the city had a faster rate of development and change. As many young architects have a role to play in each neighborhood to life every day by blowing alley.
In clients' understanding and support, rather than simply build a building intended to maximize rental income only to the logic of capital, it fits in Daebong-dong newly formed atmosphere. I hope this place is loved by many people looking for Daebong-dong.
