Today, Design Build Ideas will bring you another design project from the Covet International Awards. The project we are about to show you is the Alveolus Mangwon, the first hotel in Korea to be operated as a single room suite and it was conceived by Kim Young Seok, the founder and head designer of the Alveolus Space LAB and the former worker of the Junglim Architecture firm.
The Alveolus Space LAB is in charge of the design segment responsible not only for business models, branding, architectural design, interior design, furniture, and accessories, but also space styling and space management and marketing. Whether they focus on hotels, stores or houses, their design projects consist of the creation of a new space where exists a complex interaction that results in a unique experience.
Located in the residential area of Mangwon-dong, in Seoul, the entire process of branding, brand design, remodeling and space design of this interior decor project was created based on a consistent design concept.
The area where the new single room suite hotel is located retains almost the conventional Morden house role model, first built in 1971. All of the exterior aesthetic of the design project was based on the value of “Milestone of history”, a small reminder of memories of the city.
About Kim Young Seok (Alveolus Space LAB Master Director)
While working as a PD at Junglim Architecture in Korea, he established Alveolus Space LAB. It is now a ‘total design’ activity that incorporates business models, branding, architectural design, interior design, furniture and accessories, space styling and space management and marketing. Space in hotels, stores, houses, etc. is not a single program, but rather a new space where each space creates a new program through a complex interaction, breathing locally, and all the elements that make up the space create a unique experience.
