Text description provided by the architects. The space of ‘near my [B]’ placed in the center of Wuirye new town that changes every day with our passion for making a city easily and the aspiration for a better residential space began from a creative idea of the client.
It is intended to provide a small vitality for the whole city by furnishing the public-interest space called ‘cultural space’ beyond the constructor’s goal of parcel-out and lease.
It is largely divided into 3 parts. The space having the complex entry route connects the right café, educational space, left space of flower shop, living shop, book café in the most open manner by interpenetrating the link space of ‘White Arch Volume’ in order to make the linear organic moving line.
The language of the material and shape used for the inside was planned most simply and was designed to be faithful to the role called culture space through the delicately designed details and lighting.
‘Book shelf’ placed in the middle of space plays a fundamental role uniting small volumes in the space and made it possible to recognize the character of space easily.
It was intended to provide experiences of enjoying the landscape and daily life happening in the space from multilateral points of view by providing the ‘sitting method’ of various ways with the ‘small nature’ arranged in places.
