Kolon Sport by Sotsot Rebirth Shop is the latest project by Schemata Architects on the South Korean island of Jeju, is located in a recently expanded area of ​​the seaside town. Today the space presents itself as a sports shop that unfolds in the spaces of a conventional building developed over three floors and built mainly in reinforced concrete. Where the pre-existing environments were divided into separate sections, creatives stepped in to create spacious, open spaces between the first and second floors. Here, cracks and imperfections became design tools.

“With the goal of transforming the building into an attractive mixed-use building in the future, we first removed the stereotypical signage so that the boundaries of the individual sections are not perceptible from the outside,” explain the architects. “This time we renovated part of this building, but since the owner owned three parts there, we decided to reorganize them and connect them to the top of the building and the buildings on the side and back of it to make room for creating the future change and evolution.” Essentially, the entire project was built in the noble search for harmony between spaces that have eliminated their boundaries, to welcome open and spacious environments that eliminate divisions.

In addition, one keyword helps to describe the whole intervention, permeating all aspects: sustainability. From clothing to building, through the glorious practice of adaptive reuse, design and purpose become noble and respectful. After all, the emotional heart of the store couldn’t be more or ask for more. With this, Kolon Sport offers a homage to the second life of things, where the Sotsot Rebirth brand sells unique items made from recycled materials. To ensure the fabrics and interior design are in sync, the creatives added multiple details using sea debris collected along the coast of Jeju Island and breathed new life into objects that were previously destined to sit on the sea for years seabed to roll. That, after all, is what rebirth is all about.
