CHANDLER VACATION HOME This project was remodeling a chandler vacation home. The client wanted to make a space as large as possible. The interior space was small and many spaces were wasted. So the remodeling was focused on how to make the interior space more useful and practical. The concept is a snow- covered tree which always stands around the house. The snow- covered tree gives harmony inside and outside. I used lots of wood materials to create comfortable vacation home and used white colored materials to make the small space wider. Exterior has lots of reflective windows which are designed so as not to interrupt the surroundings. So the house is half transparent at the view of outside.

CONAN FOODS The building is located at San Francisco down town. This project was making a manufacturing factory. To make the factory successful, the main targets for this manufacturing company are business man, office worker, students, tourists and the people who have limited time for meal. The purpose of use of the building is manufacturing the rolls, sushi, kimbob, triangle shape kimbob, and sushi trays. The counter place is designed by fast food restaurant style such as a subway. This buildingâ€™s main concept inspiration is from sushi mart. The sushi mart is made of wood. So the main interior materials are wood. The design is focused on the relationships between the public and private spaces. Public space is for selling food and private space is for manufacturing.

The client wanted to open a wellness center which provides yoga center, massage therapy, meditation, and hydrotherapy etc. The concept for this project was â€˜Waterâ€™. Water is such an essential part of human life and we all use it every single day. Water can provide us with mental consolation, relaxation and tranquility. That is to say, water plays a role as sourceful rest area of human life. So I felt it is only fitting to use water as the concept. I wanted to successfully design spa by concept of water and imagination. Even though water is something that we are all very familiar with, water has things more than we may imagine. Water is dynamic, fluid and sustains human life. At the same time, water can be transparent, calm and completely still. Water exists in many states and they are all individually unique with different patterns and forms. And the most important thing is water can invigorate five human senses by washing away impurities and heal body and mind.
I wanted to capture the motion of water and translated it into the space by incorporating various water features throughout the space, including the wall behind the indoor seating area. I also wanted to represent the motion of water via the use of glass, Modular Arts Dune tiles, lighting and the exciting curves and shape.

MARIOTTO RESIDENCE This project was remodeling a three stories house for three different clients. The clients were family members and they wanted to have their own unique interiors. The basic approach for the concept was finding a subject that human being wants to have something like a sweet home and also has one name but has his own characteristic just like a family members. The concept for all three interiors of the house is salt pond. There are many kinds of salt pond all over the world. Each country has his own salt pond style because of different environments. I chose three kinds of salt ponds for three different stories which have their special characteristics. For the first floor I chose a colorful salt pond in San Francisco. For the second floor I chose white salt pond in Korea. For the third floor I chose brown salt pond which is very famous in Peru Salinas. I used color schemes from each countryâ€™s salt pond for my design.

The garden unit was designed for the clientâ€™s niece. It was smaller than other two units so I used white toned materials such as white marble, white paint, and white furniture to make room look wider. Also, there are a step and glass partition to give separation between living space and bed space. The vivid colored scheme from San Francisco Salt Pond was used for accent.
Facing Page: Kitchen & Dining Room The kitchen and dining room are combined into a single modern space with contemporary furniture.

Also, the client often invites guests to have a party so there are big opened kitchen and guest room.
