Daeyang Gallery and House was designed by Steven Holl Architects (http://www.stevenholl.com/) for Daeyang Shipping (http://www.dyship.com/), and their local architect was E.rae Architects (http://www.eraearchi.com/). Completed in 2012, the form of the building was inspired by Istvan Anhalt’s sketch of music score for “Symphony of Module” which was drawn in 1967. It is comprised of one large mass on ground level with three masses on top of it. The large mass houses gallery and event space, and above is residential space, meeting room, and a lounge. Skylights and water are the natural magic to the space. Skylights bring natural light into the space with several of them dappled by the water above.
Total floor area : 10,703 sqft
Address : 13, Seonjam-ro 7-gil, Seongbuk-dong, Seoul (서울 성북구 성북동 선잠로7길 13)
