Lichtvision Design + Casper Mueller Kneer Architects-Garden Conservatory Seoul
글래스 하우스 가든
서울 현대백화점 목동점에는 미니멀리즘을 추구하는 ‘글래스 하우스 가든 룸’이 위치합니다. 정적인 오픈플랜 속에 자연적인 조경요소를 배치함으로써 쇼핑객과 방문객들에게 고요한 공간과 사색을 할 수 있는 시간을 선물합니다.The Hyundai Department Store Mokdong in Seoul features the world's most famous luxury brands. While one’s senses are challenged in the shopping sections below, the top floor offers a space to rest. The minimalist “Glass House Garden Room” offers a place of tranquillity for shoppers and visitors. It serves as the entrance floor to the surrounding residential towers and can play host to events and exhibitions. The space is visually broken up by islands of green plants that are embedded in the floor. A swarm of plant-friendly LED lights is placed above each island, which is intended to promote both human and plant well-being.
A place of recreation - Casper Mueller Kneer Architects and Lichtvision Design have designed the space as a contemporary interpretation of the traditional greenhouse and transformed it into an oasis right in the heart of the city. They have already realized various areas of other Hyundai stores in Seoul. In Mokdong, the surrounding roof terrace on the seventh floor was extended into the interior –daylight, however, only enters the room through the side windows. Although the ceiling is modeled after a greenhouse roof, its panels are artificially backlit. The actual ceiling above is flat and does not let in any daylight. Therefore, it was necessary to develop a lighting solution that fosters the healthy development of the plants and at the same time improves human well-being.
