Granhand Namsan Store
Granhand Namsan Store是一家位于韩国首尔的香水专卖店。源于两位创始人对古老而隽永的空间有着深深的迷恋和向往，所以在他们所设计的作品中总能寻找到久经岁月的痕迹，并且能够转化为与当代审美和设计的直接关联。在这间面积为217.18㎡的空间中，其极简的设计因色彩的对比和造型感丰富的线条而变得生动有趣。

A Sculptural Graphic Novel Library
Graphic Novel Library位于韩国首尔梨泰院，是一家新开业的书店，以销售图形小说、漫画、艺术和设计类相关书籍为主。四层的独立建筑坐落于低矮的砖墙公寓之间，其层叠外扩或者内缩的外观显得格外引人注目，建筑立面上没有常规可见的门窗，迂回的路径引导客人“循序渐进”，而后步入书店的内部空间。
Graphic Novel Library is a newly opened bookstore in Itaewon, Seoul, South Korea, selling Graphic novels, comics, art and design-related books. The four-storey freestanding building, nestled between low-slung brick-walled apartments, is striking in its cascading outward expansion and inward contraction. There are no conventional visible doors and Windows on the facades, and winding paths guide guests step by step into the interior of the bookstore.
Graphic Novel Library
，建筑垂直排列的外立面设计构思来自于Kim Jong-u从他祖父那里继承的一本装订页不平整的旧书，卷曲的包裹形状向内、谦逊，有着时间的肌理和烙印。外立面特殊的表皮材料由Kim Jong-u与中国陶瓷艺术家刘文平合作设计。
Graphic Novel Library was jointly designed by U.LAB and OONN Metaworks. The vertical facade of the building was conceived from an old book with uneven binding pages that Kim Jong-u inherited from his grandfather. The curling shape of the package is inward, modest, and has the texture and imprint of time. The special skin material for the facade was designed by Kim Jong-u in collaboration with Chinese ceramic artist Liu Wenping.
