Site Area : 96,000.00©O

The New Town Masterplan is the winning scheme of Design Competition
in Whasung dongtan Special District. The aim of the development is
to pursue environmental consciousness, ecological conservation, and
restoration of tradition which are the main concepts of the masterplan.
The new town as the spinal role of futuristic city is to create
Vital Green city harmonizing with residence, commercial, mixed use.
The masterplan has been analyzed with the relationship between city
and residence with mixed use commercial facilities.
To define street life and retail activities, the masterplan introduces
the linkage between spaces and reinforces territoriality of each
Hwasung dongtan Mixed-use Complex
The design of the Hwaseong Dongtan Mixed-Use Complex is based on
the simple objective to collect and focus the people and their energies
on a multi-level garden based shopping and entertainment place where
people of all ages can comfortably spend the day shopping alongside
nature. Through this consolidation of the people and the marriage
of the central park with the retail
experience we will provide the people of Hwaseong Dongtan a memorable
and endearing place that they will cherish
CREATE A LANDMARK REGIONAL ATTRACTION
This project will be noteworthy for the quantities and qualities
of the retail and entertainment spaces first and foremost. While
the residential towers will be tall and visible, it is the retail
that will reach out to the public and bring them all to this place.
To this end we have given the central experience a physical embodiment
in the form of a roof trellis that defines the space and place.
This trellis will provide a diffused light throughout the year as
well as serving as an armature for seasonal displays and celebrations.
In addition to the functional provisions the trellis will serve
to unify the northern and southern parcels into one comprehensive
whole. Through this engagement of the public into this place the
complex and the town itself will become a landmark for the people
of the area.
CREATE AN IMAGE OF PLACE THAT IS CURRENT AND TIMELESS
To create a place that will endure in time, we have rendered the
buildings in simple and elegant forms that appear stable and comfortable.
These forms will be composed of stones, metals and a variety of
translucent glasses in a very simple manner.
The Architecture will serve as the background for the activities
and the natural elements of the place. Through this suppression
of the Architectural vocabulary, the people and the park will serve
as the face of the place and, along with that changing cast, the
ability to renew and rejuvenate over time. This ability to rejuvenate
over time will also be reinforced by the strong central form that
will control the identity while allowing a variety of activities
at the edges to grow and modify over time.
