Text description provided by the architects. Discovered as a place that keeps the emotions of Korean housing style in the alley to express modern commercial culture, this is a site where the position of residents and that of those staying for a while are different, and it is too tight for cars and people to pass by.
We wanted to suggest a space where people could look at the sky quietly in such an alley. We decided to design a space where people could enjoy “colorless contemplation” at this site which touches the sky first.
After a few seconds of silence experienced by the reflected sunlight at the moment going up the third floor, a space in the shape of a “glass cube” is located imposingly. Ceiling, seats, and bar counter connected inside and outside create the space which makes people concentrate on contemplation, by simplifying vertical and horizontal lines maximally.
