Modern Materials and Gentle Curves Create An Inviting Atmosphere In This Cafe in South Korea | Practice Sukchulmok

South Korea- based design firm- Practice Sukchulmok has optimised contemporary materials, arches, curves and rounded edges in this 'Parconido' bakery cafe. Located in Northern Gyeonggi Do, the café’s interior features a warm blend of red brick, travertine, and wood. Crafted with careful attention to detail, all fixtures and fittings were custom-made to complement the curved shape of the space. Read more about the project below at SURFACES REPORTER (SR):

Material palette

A consistent palette of stainless steel and red bricks is employed through columns and walls, as each element is composed within a radius of 600 mm. The clay bricks are two-thirds of their original thickness, providing a light coating on the iron frame below.

In this way, Sukchulmok has designed an open layout that conveys the delicate balance between unity and variety.

A dramatic continuum of curves

The curved walls, ceiling, and floor create a sense of expansiveness. Concrete castings, wood textures, and pipes are arranged in perfect circles to bring a smooth aesthetic. 

While red brick and wood provide warmth to the area, travertine limestone lends an air of European-style elegance. All these features come together to blur the boundaries between each area and produce a seemingly weightless environment.
