synopsis : : The design developed for this complex narrow property rejected the idea to just follow a multitude regulations in place that would define a random senseless volumetry if trying to obtain the maximum allowed area, and instead come up with such area requirements through big efforts to obatin a properly composed architeture, with an intentionate expression free of legal struggles. The vertical louvers wrapping the facades present different finishes on each orientation so that the building would have a different pressence when observed from the nearby crossing, one of the busiests in Seoul, or from the smaller alleys on the other side : :
