New York-based REX architecture has developed ‘project R6’ an urban boutique residence for short-term business people, young urban professionals and foreign residents located in the fast-growing Yongsan International Business District of Seoul, South Korea.
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. A high-performance façade composed of frameless IGUs emphasizes the exterior views and interior black-out and shade rollers control sunlight and glare. By placing the building to the south of Block R6, all units command great views and the building forms a gateway to the YIBD. Take a look!
