Well done, University of Seoul. Softens the modern cut.
Rest Hole in the University of Seoul by UTAA
The first floor of the dormitory in University of Seoul was originally an empty parking lot.
The project was started in efforts to replace an empty area with a newly designed rest ‘hole’ that would serve as a place for people to enjoy themselves in relaxation. Prior to the renovation, the large columns that supported the structure would induce an unpleasant ‘heavy’ feeling to the structure; to lessen this, wooden panels were arranged to cover the columns and further improve the atmosphere by implementing a more fluid and spacious design. The spacing of the panels allows for light, sound, and air to smoothly pass and reinforces the concept of flexibility.
