Various possibilities of the educational space “Academy-C”
Academy-C is located in Sangil-dong, Gangdong-gu, Seoul, at the intersection of Sangil-IC of the Seoul Metropolitan Area First Ring Road and the road to Hanam City. Company C, a comprehensive environmental sanitation company, will create an academic course to nurture excellent human resources who will be responsible for sanitation projects for living environments such as food, air, pests and safety. As a necessary learning space for this purpose, a comprehensive facility with accommodation functions along with a learning center and lecture rooms where several simulations can be conducted on site near the main office has been planned. The academy consists of 6 floors underground and 10 floors above ground on a site of 1,585.90 square meters (about 480 pyeong), with a total floor area of 11,669.27 square meters (3530 pyeong), teaching, residence and office functions. The work is arranged vertically on each floor.

From the fifth basement to the third floor, there is a hall for 150 people, a classroom and a meeting room for 30 people, and various types of simulation training centers. In addition, on the fourth to eighth floors above the grounds there are accommodations for apprentices, and on the ninth to tenth floors, which are the upper floors, there are restaurants and a multi-purpose banquet hall. The huge lobby in the center of the building extends from the fifth basement floor to the third floor, allowing you to experience the feeling of open space throughout the building. Accordingly, the bright light entering all spaces of the building, including the basement, blurs the boundary between the ground and the basement, relieving the psychological frustration that can occur.
The curvilinear mass of the hatch and a special aluminum panel that properly harmonizes curves and straight lines with the dynamic energy generated by the adjacent motorway junction, is reborn as a building that exists even when viewed from a fast-moving highway. As an external finishing material, a metal plate with a special treatment was used to give the company a clean and clean feeling. In addition, the white opening in the front not only emphasizes the smooth flow of mass but also allows adequate light to enter the interior of floors 4-8 where the residence function is placed, and plays a role in securing privacy from outside.
In order to give the impression of a future-oriented adventure company that emphasizes cleanliness, a white metallic material has been used on the exterior of the facade to contrast with the surrounding blue glass building. At the rear of the apartment complex, dark stone was used in exchange for the violation of the right of view of the housing installations due to the reflection of light.
The white louvre that catches the eye when looking from the road gently surrounds the rest area and residence area to keep adequate lighting, stimulating a variety of views and openness from the inside. This device complements the geometric opening of the windows, giving the overall impression of the building as a symbolic streamlined mass.
