(building complete 2000)

This building in central Seoul is the first rusty cor-ten steel façade to be built in South Korea. Working studios are arranged in four separate “little houses” that stand on a concrete base containing the common gallery and restaurant areas accessible to the public. Large windows stand on the floor like large pictures, giving views of a wooded mountain slope on the other side of a busy city street.
