The Nonhyun 101-1 Building by Stocker Lee Architetti located in the Gangnam district, a commercial area in the south of Seoul, South Korea. “A concrete basement, shaped by the structure, generates a filter space between inside and outside, public and private,” added the studio. “It identifies the main entrance and the ground floor cafe and it also structurally supports a clear block of bricks on top.”
A pair of apartments are placed in the top two levels. These floors are stepped back to create terraces surrounded by balustrades, which are made up of vertical metal pieces coloured the same dark red as the brickwork.
Each of the flats are arranged differently. Both have open-plan kitchen, dining and living areas, but one features two bedrooms and bathrooms, while the other has just one of each.
