…built in a 20-year-old warehouse! A year ago in October, a young couple in their late 20s, visited Studio_Gaon to build their house to live after their wedding. They were the youngest clients who required their design.

The couple was about to get married, and they wanted to renovate the concrete warehouse in the bride’s hometown as their new house. They said they want to fix it and take it as the starting point of their new life.

The warehouse was built 20 years ago by the bride’s father. He bought some property to start a new business in his hometown, and the very warehouse was an animal feed factory for a chicken farm. To let some big machineries in, the height became 5 meters high with a reinforced concrete structure, and exterior was finished with mortar on cement blocks.

It’s just like Natalie Cole singing the song ‘Unforgettable’, which was sung by her father Nat King Cole, after several decades her father passed away. The daughter put the two story house inside the warehouse, not unlike a snail’s shell made by her father. So the life and house continues again, and we decided to call this house ‘Unforgettable’.
