Casamoro Condominiums by G.Lab*
of Gansam Partners


Seoul architects G.Lab* of Gansam Partners have completed three apartments overlooking the Han river in Hongcheon, South Korea.

Called Casamoro Condominiums, the project consists of three units, elevated above parking and a cafe on the first floor terrace.

Each of these units is angled to afford different views of the opposite bank of the river.

Here's some text from the architects:


Casamoro Condominiums are set on the northern bank of the Han River, there are three units, with views of the river and more specifically, each unit corresponds to a specific terrain feature on the opposite bank.

Parking space in on the second level and immediately offers a pleasant view of the river.

The condominium units are then elevated above, allowing for added privacy and enhanced views.

The floating units reveal a communal café space below with access to the waterfront.

The orientation of the individual units and elevated presence provides secure privacy for personal and intimate leisure.

A country  sanctuary for those who wish for a peaceful meditative escape from the city, nestled with in residential suburb, the Casamoro condominiums offers unparallel views and modern texture.

    ohh… with more then 10mm lens lenght we could perhaps imagine how the buildigns and rooms really are?!

  • aeolus

    Makes an interesting grouping of well constructed condos. But one bed and 2 full baths? Also that narrow dead end walkway is strange. And looks like a bar on level 2 but no service facilities. Nice project anyway.

    yeah. the problem is that we can really imagine how it looks like, and the building reflected on 10mm lens is all fake.

    Expressive, expensive, glass and concrete, questionable interior quality and even worse floor area ratio for actual residential function – this is almost PURE architecture. Love it or leave it (quickly).

    Does not the project have any interesting view spot other than underneath the building?? pretty weird images to explain the project.

  • akotosac

    what’s that underneath? a canteen for the 3 bachelor’s pad/loft? seems a quite a waste. Form of somekind but not that efficient. The interior is a blasphemy. Nice finish though exterior wise.
