Site Plan
Site Plan

The arrangement of the buildings adapted the site boundary by itself and reserving the existed forest. The streamlined layout in consideration of the seasonal wind directions can block the cold wind in the winter and make the wind blow well and ventilate naturally during the summer. By separating the mass, the nature of the nutmeg forest was involved, and the Vista Point was made to look out the surrounding nature while let it be favorable to ventilate naturally. It is planned to separate the Healing Center, Education and Experience, Accommodation and Business and Study space as the independent cluster, but connected organically by vertical moving lines, and to install the rooftop Healing Garden and the Integrated Healing Center to improve the convenience of the users and to maximize the healing effects. For the architecture, the Aegigudeog for healing in the nutmeg forest was embodied in motif of the Aegigudeog, and use the aluminum louver while the lower part is representing the traditional stone wall in Jeju. In particular, it is planned to have the even natural light and the smooth natural ventilation and to secure the sight through the louver in consideration of the incidence angle of the sun and the sight view.

The building of high sealing and of high performance is constructed to reduce the load of heating and cooling by blocking the heat leakage at the slab junction with the exterior insulation method and by reinforcing the function of exterior insulation applying the insulating materials of high performance and the double Low-E glasses. The rain utilizing facility and the environment-friendly reusable materials are applied to reuse and reduce to use the resources. New regeneration energies are applied, such as solar heat, sunlight and wind power, to reduce energy for heating water and lighting, and also, the equipment of high performance is applied to realize a passive house.
