Waveon Cafe in Gijang

This coastal cafe in the South Korean city of Gijang comprises a series of enormous concrete volumes that dwarf neighboring houses, and are stacked and rotated to optimise views of the East China Sea.


Seoul studio IDMM Architects was asked to develop the 500-square-metre building to make the most of the spectacular views. “Depending on where and how we see the beach, the sea shows diverse views for us,” said the architects, referring to the varying vistas available from the rocky headland. “Accordingly, the significant matter of this project is how we can grasp and deal with the relationship between natural scenery and architecture.”
