About the project

My philosophy in space planning and interior design for local community and government-supported institutions revolves around respecting and reflecting local society and culture. I honor each space’s community identity by integrating historical and cultural backgrounds into the design, aligning with the needs of public institutions and local communities.

Despite limited budgets, I have successfully completed projects such as a $4,500 language institute in a gentrified area, a $3,000 clothing store in Bukchon, and a $30,000 renovation of an old beauty salon. My goal is to create spaces that offer comfort and enrichment, meeting both practical and aesthetic needs.

Local Autonomous Elderly Welfare Center

2013 / Pirundae-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, Republic of Korea

The Local Autonomous Elderly Welfare Center, built by citizens located in Noosang-dong. Despite the internal construction, people did not come because of rain and appearance. So I covered exterior walls with thermal insulation and remodeled then according to the building to the age of visitors. The total construction cost was about 5000 dollars.



DJ Hair Shop

2013 / Gullebang-ro, Mapo-gu, Seoul, Republic of Korea

This beauty shop, originally slated for redevelopment in the area, was saved through government startup support, allowing young entrepreneurs to establish a new business. I undertook the repair and renovation of this old salon. The slate ceilings, which were at risk of collapsing, were completely rebuilt using insulation materials. Additionally, all lighting in the store was upgraded to LED fixtures. The total construction cost amounted to approximately $30,000.



Bukchon clothes shop

2013 / Bukchon-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, Republic of Korea

I established the first clothing store in Bukchon, despite operating within a restricted area due to its proximity to the Presidential residence. I preserved the original structure of the building, which was over 90 years old, as much as possible. The total cost of the project was approximately $3,000.

Foreign language school

2013 / Apgujeong-ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, Republic of Korea

I established a language institute in a commercial area impacted by gentrification, commissioned by many local educators. The total cost of the project was approximately $4,500.
