Text description provided by the architects. One of South Korea’s current problems is that the majority of its population is concentrated in Seoul. However, regional cities are also growing cultural development at the government level. In the case of Wonju, Gangwon-do, they have a local city program called Innovation City, which is increasing population density, but what is missing from the growth figures is culture. The idea was to create a cultural and commercial ،e unique to the place where culture happens.
The ،nd ‘HAPPY GO LUCKY’ literally means carefree and optimistic, and we tried to translate that into the ،e. We wanted to present a ،e unique to ‘HAPPY GO LUCKY’ to people living in Wonju, Gangwon-do. We wanted to convey and project the meaning and iden،y of ‘HAPPY GO LUCKY’ to people through items such as coffee on the way to work in the morning and ،tails after work.
Unraveling the atmosphere of ‘HAPPY GO LUCKY’ was the core of this project: finding unfamiliar and heavy materials and finishes with the same ،per value but opposite atmospheres, and creating a warm atmosphere to create an unfamiliar but comfortable ،e for people to enjoy in the ،e.
Through studying the design of various furniture and the atmosphere of each seat, we tried to give variations in the ،e through the furniture, focusing on the main furniture, walls, and flooring that ،ld the center of the ،e.
