춘천시 동면 장학리에 위치한 건물을 포토 스튜디오이자 카페인 Present Perfect의 공간으로 재탄생시키는 수평 증축 프로젝트입니다.
대상지가 위치한 동면 장학리는 일몰 명소로, 매년 많은 관광객들이 방문합니다.
대상지가 산 중턱에 위치하기에 큰 레벨 차이가 존재했지만, 이런 지형적 특징을 이용해 다른 뷰를 보여줌으로써 풍부한 자연의 모습을 연출했습니다. 기존 건물 1층 앞에 별동의 2층이 연결되도록 수평 건축하여 구조적, 물리적으로 분리하면서도 한 공간으로 느껴질 수 있도록 했습니다. 또한 ,구조가 단순히 건물을 지탱하는 역할로만 간주되지 않고, 마치 건물이 입은 하나의 옷처럼 드러내지길 바랐습니다.
무엇보다도 주변의 아름다운 환경이 공간 안으로 들어올 수 있기를, 나무, 바람, 햇빛 등 자연적 요소들로 하여금 이곳을 방문하는 사람들이 따뜻한 기억을 가지고 돌아갈 수 있기를 바라며, 문을 열고 들어섰을 때 자연을 마주할 수 있게 큰 창을 내었고, 일몰 즈음이 되면 서쪽으로 난 창을 타고 건물 깊숙이 붉은 빛이 들어오도록 설계했습니다. 

This is an extension project that gave new life to an old building by expanding it horizontally. It is located in Janghak-ri, Dong-myeon, in the city of Chuncheon. It has been turned into a cafe and photo studio named Present Perfect.
Janghak-ri is known for its gorgeous sunsets, and attracts many tourists every year.
As the building is located on a side of a mountain, there was difficulty with the levels. However, we harnessed these geological features to show some unique views and were able to showcase nature's beauty at its best. The first floor of the original structure has been connected to the second floor of the annex, allowing the buildings to be structurally and physically separate but at the same time, look as though they belong to the same space. Further, we attempted to create the illusion of the buildings wearing a single piece of clothing, rather than having the structure serve the sole purpose of holding up the building.
Above all, the design brings into the space the beauty of surrounding nature, with the trees, wind, and sunlight working together to offer an experience all visitors are going to wish to take back with them. A large window was cut out so that by stepping through the door, one would be faced with nature, and the blazing red rays may penetrate the building through the windows facing west.
