Meet The First Ever Single Room Suit in Seoul, the Alveolus Mangwon – This contemporary design project is one of the contestants for the Covet International Awards 2018 and is located nearby some of the city must-visit places, just like the traditional market, the riverside park or even the local bridge.
Alveolus Mangwon, which means “a tiny alveolus(of a lung) in the urban”, is the first single room suite hotel built in Korea. The architecture and design project was created 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, remodelling 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.
The interior design was created with the purpose to create the perfect day sensation, from early morning to sunset, which is provided by the natural light. Since it is located on the south side of the town, this space provides different views. The direction of the sunlight highlights every single detail of each material that was used on the creation of the design project, such as wood, brick, and stainless steel.
The new Alveolus project was designed without walls to improve the social skills between the several people that will stay at the hotel. Everything was thought so that the people who stay in this contemporary style hotel can feel comfortable just like they feel in their homes!
