Text description provided by the architects. The terrace and balcony, which are preferred as the best space in the whole building in the Western world, are disappearing in Korea due to the desire of more indoor space. It lost its distinct character by being covered with glass or being expanded to an indoor space. For the Namsan Patio, we wanted to create a place that would substitute this vanishing space.

We wanted to create a sustainable free space, not a terrace or a balcony that would disappear in the future. Patio can contain a multiple meaning. This place(patio) can become a relaxed time in our lives, and it can also be a goal or an assignment. It can be utilized as an exterior living room, an entrance yard, a garden, or even as a domestic space. Users will continue to maintain the patio. Through such activity, the space and the users become one, and the space will be completed by being filled with new functions and activities.

The building surrounds the site, bearing the patio. The vertically opened courtyard and the horizontally opened free space come together and form a relationship. This relationship brings completion of the patio. Centered by the patio, the circulation flows. The interior walls that are made up with bricks transmit a deep sense of touch. The brick wall offers a single silhouette as a whole, which connects the free spaces that are piled vertically. The patio, flowing on the courtyard space, will be a free space which connects nature, human, and the city.
