Text description provided by the architects. The hill, where I sit, is my space! A place to relax, a new experience, design concept reinterpreted with the variety of languages. The hill located at the corner of the alleyway in Yeon-nam Dong will catch your attention.

This small shop got rid of the concept of “Space (Tables and chairs) needed to “Sit”. Getting rid of the tables and the chairs, and looking up from the low hill, where your sight is, became the space and scenery. Having a diverse way to sit, beyond overcoming uncomfortableness, would mean the beginning of a new experience. This small place is a tiny coffee shop where you can enjoy a cup of coffee with wherever you choose to sit, becomes your space.

A purpose such as, “New experience, where everybody stays in the same space but they must be able to enjoy the variety of sceneries.” is expressed with metaphorical interpretation including “The hill”.

The hill, where breeze passed by, becomes a space that gives freedom of sights.
The light, time and shape walk slowly through the ceiling.
The moon hiding behind the hill. The coffee bar becomes a shining stage with baristas.
The bamboo, feels wavering winds.
The mirror, captures the calm sunset.
“The hill is a space where you can sit and relax for a moment = A place where one wants to rest”

In a subconscious moment where the sensibility of a person is moved by the familiar experience, the message of the hill here, will be recognized as space to just sit down and relax. The additional element to the scenery, is probably the moment when nature moves. The light that shines through the ceiling will stay on the hill according to the time.

The winds that will blow across the shop will sway the leaves on the bamboo tree. The sunset will reflect in the mirror and will generate another sense of color. When the sun sets and darkness comes upon, the coffee bar with the barista will become a shining stage like the moon hidden behind the hill.

The stairs, which is the way to the restroom, is structured to go to the highest point of the hill and to come back down, where a feeling of disappearing behind the hill, and the view of resting people intersect.
