The Minimalist Multifunctional D&DEPARTMENT JEJU by Schemata Architects
D&DEPARTMENT JEJU by ARARIO is a minimalist multifunctional space located in Jeju, South Korea, designed by Schemata Architects. The project includes a restaurant, store, gallery, workshop and hotel-like spaces serving as an extension of the store. The building was designed as a two-way cultural exchange point.
For the hotel spaces, dubbed “d room,” the rooms are lined up north to south along the central corridor with each room having a window looking out. No two rooms have the same floor plan, and have unique irregular layouts within.
Objects within the common area and private rooms – including furniture, plants and miscellaneous goods – are available for sale within the store. Since one building was not enough to accommodate all of the functions, the architects combined two buildings into one.
