Ami-cote means 'on the hillside' in French and is located at an elevation of 265m above sea level at the foot of Unmunsan Mountain (the height of Namsan Mountain in Seoul). A small commercial space and housing were planned on the land divided by reclamation of the mountainous area. It started with the purpose of researching a healthy life by making authentic healthy juice with good ingredients on the mountainside and providing drinks using local specialties. When I visited the site, it reminded me of beautiful Korean paintings with overlapping mountains and mist. I felt a sense of fresh admiration towards the client for leaving the city and opening a commercial space on the mountainside. We tried to create a reason to visit this place despite it being in a mountainous area, by making the most of the advantages of the site. Due to the limited project cost, only the cafe building has been built, and the rest is expected to be carried out in stages.



Town making: minimal architecture, maximal scenery


Sales facilities, restaurant lounges, and detached houses are gathered in the two business sites to become a village. The central building consists of a courtyard and annexes connected in an 'ㅏ' shape. Using the divided site and the difference in elevation, the horizontal wall that meets at the entrance draws users to the center of the village. When you enter through the courtyard, you can experience the connected external space. Through the road, you meet the space, and spaces meet to form an architectural village that becomes a landscape.



Landscape crack


The crack in the landscape is the most important idea in Ami-cote. The gap created by using the difference in elevation of the site divides or connects the space. A gap in the landscape separates the functional space from the lounging space, allowing one to commune with the nature that remains. In the gaps and spaces created, we hope users forget the architecture and communicate with nature.

아미꼬뜨는 프랑스어로 '산 중턱에' 라는 뜻으로 운문산 자락 해발고도 265m(서울 남산의 높이)에 위치한다. 산지를 개간하여 분할한 토지에 작은 상업공간과 주택을 계획했다. 산 중턱에서 좋은 재료로 진정성 있는 건강즙을 만들고, 지역의 특산물을 활용한 음료를 제공하여 건강한 삶을 연구하는 목적으로 시작되었다. 대지를 방문하였을 때 중첩된 산과 운무로 아름다운 한국화가 연상되는 곳이었다. 도시를 떠나 산중턱에서 상업공간을 열겠다는 건축주의 용기가 새삼 대단하게 느껴졌다. 산지임에도 불구하고 대지의 장점을 최대한 살려 이곳을 방문해야 하는 이유를 만들고자 했다. 제한된 사업비로 인해 현재는 카페 동만 건축되었고, 나머지는 단계적으로 진행되길 기대하고 있다.



마을 만들기: 최소한의 건축, 최대한의 풍경


2개의 사업지에 판매시설, 휴게음식점, 단독주택이 모여 마을이 되고자 한다. 중심 건물은 'ㅏ' 자 형태로 연결된 중정과 부속 건물로 구성된다. 분할된 대지와 고저 차를 활용해 진입로에서 만나는 가로 벽은 마을 중심으로 이용자를 끌어들인다. 마당을 거쳐 들어오면, 연결된 외부공간을 경험할 수 있다. 길을 통해 공간과 만나고, 공간과 공간이 만나 풍경이 되는 건축 마을이 구성된다.



풍경의 틈(Landscape crack)


풍경의 틈은 아미꼬뜨에서 가장 핵심적인 생각이다. 대지의 고저 차를 이용해 만들어진 틈은 공간을 분절하기도 혹은 연결하기도 한다. 풍경의 틈을 통해 기능 공간과 휴식 공간을 분리하고, 남겨진 자연과 교감할 수 있도록 한다. 만들어진 틈과 공간에서 사용자는 건축을 잊고 자연과 교감하기를 기대한다.
