This 30-year-old housing community, located in a typical Seoul residential district, will be recreated as a standard of new urban living with one of the most prestigious housing brands, Samsung Raemian.
The scheme juxtaposes south-facing towers with the surrounding street grid. Southern orientation of living spaces and primary building facades is beneficial as a step in providing environmentally sensitive, energy-efficient structures. With irregularity of the ground plane grid, the building allows for a hierarchy of open spaces. Several other smaller and variously sized green spaces are set around the site and may be associated with particular towers or assigned special uses for the community.
