  3. 3. Project 6- Introduction • YIBD ‘Project R6’, designed by REX, is an urban boutique residence for short-term business people, young urban professionals, and foreign residents in Seoul, South Korea. To meet the trends of its users and compensate for its small unit size, R6 must create a strong sense of community and its residences must be highly attractive, providing generous views, daylight, and cross-ventilation. Maximizing daylight and cross- ventilation are also paramount to providing a highly sustainable residence. • To meet the trends of its users and compensate for its small unit size, R6 must engender a strong sense of community and its residences must be highly attractive, providing generous views, daylight, and cross- ventilation.

  6. 6. Location of R6 Block R6 is a narrow parcel bounded by the planned Mountain Park—including Children’s Interactive Spray Park, Rail Road Museum, Outdoor Amphitheatre and Yongsan Station Esplanade—and the central park of the planned development Zone B3, adjacent to Hangang-ro. By placing the building to the south of Block R6, all units command great views and the building forms a gateway to YIBD from Hangang-ro.

  8. 8. Concept • By pulling layers of the typical housing tower in opposing directions, the small units maintain their size, but are stretched into favourable proportions that provide views and daylight from both sides, excellent cross-ventilation, and a strong sense of community through the creation of a central courtyard, roof terraces, and conversation/reading/play pods. • The mega-brace supports a shelf-like matrix of walls and floor slabs that define each unit. Into each shelf is inserted a wooden shell containing a bathroom on one side and a kitchen on the other. A movable wall—using standard compact shelving technology—shifts within the unit to define a bedroom or a living room.
  9. 9. • The tower constitutes a total of 512 apartments. • Spread over a total of 40 floors and a total height of 144 meters. • The use of space remains in the same proportion in the three typologies, with “adjustable” rooms or spaces. Typologies

The wall includes a bed, nightstands, couch, television mount, task lights, and storage.
  11. 11. • The mega-brace supports a shelf-like matrix of walls and floor slabs that define each unit. Into each shelf is inserted a wooden shell containing a bathroom on one side and a kitchen on the other. • A high-performance façade—composed of frameless IGUs—emphasizes the remarkable exterior views while interior black-out and shade roller blinds control sunlight and glare.

  13. 13. • Cut plans of the project could be of four different types depending on the level on which the plan is cut. • A perfectly rectangular plan is found at the level which has no projections on either sides of the building. • The toilets in the design are inwards and lack direct ventilations. Cut Plans • The lower floors of the design serve as shops and public areas. • The design also facilitates multi level underground parking for about 900 cars. • The floor which are pulled out have 12 houses, and floors which form a full rectangle without any deformation have 14 houses.
  14. 14. Sections And Views • Communityand spatialreliefare further generated by conversation/reading/playpods extending into the courtyard. • Cross ventilationwas a very important criterionfor the architectswhiledesigning this structure,hence they came up with the design of a hollow cuboid, which gets pulled in two opposite directionsas seen in the section.

  20. 20. Project Brief • Archipelago21, Studio Daniel Libeskind's masterplan for the major redevelopment for the Yongsan International Business District of Seoul, South Korea dramatically reinvents the landscape of Korea’s historic capital city. This sustainable urban development is made up of over 30 million square feet of built area and will include a new international business district, world-class shopping, residential neighborhoods, cultural institutions,educational facilities and transportation, all sited in a large urban park along the Han River. • In addition to the masterplan, Studio Daniel Libeskind is also the architect for 3 residential towers (The Dancing Towers) and a office tower (Harmony Tower) on the site.

  22. 22. • The new large-scale district features a cluster of residential, office and retail neighborhoods in an extensive urban park along the Han River. • The development entity is Yongsan Development Co., Ltd, a South Korean conglomerate. The district will also contain new cultural institutions, educational facilitiesand rapid transportation systems. • “The idea is to create a 21st Century destination that is at once transformative, vibrant, sustainable and diverse,” Mr. Libeskind said. “I wanted to make each form, each place, each neighbourhood as varied and distinctive as possible. The plan, and each building within it, should reflect the vertical and cultural complexity of the heart of Seoul. Rafay.A |
  23. 23. Outside the islands,the siteis developed into a generous natural landscape which acts as the “sea” connecting the islandstogether. The islandsbecome distinctneighborhoods with their own unique program area, character,communityand atmosphere. Although they are distinctand human scaled, together the islandscreate a diverse and vibrant city life.These island neighborhoods break down the overall density and mass of the large urban development. The site is broken into “islands” — distinct forms that together, like an archipelago, create a composition in the landscape

  30. 30. • The exceeding building mass is transformed into an upper and lower horizontal bar, which bridge the two towers at 140 metre and 70 metre height forming the distinct “#” figure on the skyline. • The two towers are additionally connected through the arrival bar at the ground level and through a courtyard below ground. • Ultimately, the design not only triples the amount of ground floor but it also triples the amount of social interaction and reintroduces the idea of neighbourhood within the tower complex.

DIAGONAL TOWER by SOM • American architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill designed a skyscraper with glazed triangular facets for emerging commercial centre the Yongsan International Business District Of Seoul. • The Diagonal Tower will be a 343-metre-high office block on the north-eastern side of the district. • A web of netting will cloak a double height entrance lobby at the base of the tower, which will lead up to over 145,000 square metres of open-plan offices, a fitness centre, a cafe and a lounge in the penthouse to be shared by all the offices.
