Jeonju Kijeon University is a Christian school with 60 years of history, and is composed of departments focused on actual education. The president Cho Hee Cheon started this project in hopes of enhancing student welfare by increasing the opportunity for the hands on experiences of students before being hired, and to enhance the aged school facilities.

This space is operated with the cooperation of medical skincare / sommelier barista / wedding flower / baking / departments

The Christian colors were endowed, and the space was interpreted without sense of difference with the internal/external environment with history.

In case of the 1st floor, the gigantic rocks and mountain in the back were invited indoors with the large window and was utilized as natural decorative factors.
The 2nd floor placed a structure similar to a church to separate the moving routes, and this structure may be utilized for the graduation exhibition or other school events.

Schools in Korea are conservative.
The project was enthusiastically supported by students.

Because of this project,
I think I have reduced psychological distance.

The organization that is conducting the project
I felt the difference of opinion between the objects.

Because of this project space, the spacing between the two could be narrowed more easily than was thought.

Space changes daily life.
