Renovated the 40years old office building into an experimental 'open space for work and life' to stimulate creativity. Opened for anyone, this space develops new values and promotes borderless activities. The design embodies the concept of 'future urban office' as it functions as the semi-public space and provides a platform to share and co-create, as people shift workplace more frequently.

Renovation project of a building owned by a large furniture company. The old structure was composed of two middle-high rise buildings connected to each other at the first floor. In this renovation project, the connection area was demolished to be released as public space in the shape of a pocket. The two old buildings, now disconnected, are bridged by a new flow line as if it sews them together. This creates an exciting space mixing with the city space though it is a series of office spaces. The method of connecting these independent buildings by flow lines at multiple levels while involving the outside area solves the problem of division between the city and the building, and serves as an effective way to give a place of relaxation to the city and a variety of urban stimuli to the office. For this, we highly evaluate this project as a new methodology towards a stock-type society in the future.
