Evaluation

After an old public herbal garden located in a suburban area shut down, it was reborn as a place to develop a new culture and products by taking advantage of the natural resources available. The distilled alcohol made from the fruits and plants harvested here offers an entirely new value thanks to the product design. While retaining the original architecture and surrounding environment as much as possible, it has successfully transformed the place into a manufacturing site as well as a public space that encourages the visitors to interact, experience, discover and feel nature. The project proposes a new style of multifaceted space for creation.
