QUEENMAMA MARKET

 

BCHO Arhcitects Associates

 

Site Strategy & Formal Concept_ The site of the project borders Dosan Park to the south and faces the more disharmonious back alleys and small commercial buildings of the Gangnam area at the other sides. The architectural proposal for Queenmama Market began with the form of a simple concrete box responding to these unbalanced surroundings, with a smaller gable roof volume set lightly on top. The main box was raised from the ground in order to introduce natural light and air. Moreover, the greenery of the entrance garden permeates the first floor.
Programme Strategy and Structure_ The space has been planned as a cultural venue for arts and fashion, and is designed to be versatile. The open space can be transformed into a café, restaurant or exhibition hall in accordance with its various necessities. Some of the floor is a box suspended with wire. This allows the first floor and second floor enough height to function as a kitchen and hall. The gable roof of the top is also reinforced in order to support later additions.
Three Finishing Materials and the Hierarchy of the Mass_ The 3 storey square box is covered with long, narrow cut concrete bricks, which gives a visual sense of materiality and a perceptual depth to the façade. The supporting walls are finished with simple concrete. The gable roof volume is clad with light cedar boards spaced to allow light through the glass panels behind. written by Byoung Cho
