As an improvement of the working environment, this project was planned to resolve the problems of lacking welfare space for employees within the existing factory complex. Located in Gumi national industry complex, the site is close to the Nakdong River to the west and the Mt. Bongdooam to the east, following the typical east-orient layout before the mountain and facing the water. Our priority was to analyze the uniqueness of the site close to nature and to seek the latent values possessed by the environment of the site.
Based on the understanding of the inherent potential value of the site as nature-friendly greenery, the goal was to create a pleasant and healthy working environment that maximizes the sense of openness between the inside and the outside of the building. Furthermore, the project aimed to construct a horizontal space toward collaboration and communication through the re-interpretation of the given programs.
