D.LIM architects has built ‘between azalea and silvergrass’, a rest area for tourists in hwangmae mountain county park, in south korea. the project takes the form of a crescent moon to emulate the mountain’s shape around it, allowing it to blend into the surrounding landscape seamlessly.    D.LIM architects blends crescent moon-shaped rest area into korean mountainsall images courtesy of jun-hwan yoon

 

 

D.LIM architects sought to maintain the building’s design low to the ground in an attempt to lead the visitor’s attention to the wilderness around it instead. furthermore, the project is a concrete frame finished only with iron and glass and also acts as a gateway to the trail 850m over sea level dotted with the flowers mentioned above.D.LIM architects blends crescent moon-shaped rest area into korean mountains

 

 

as time passes, the structure will slowly merge with the extended  scenery, change color to match the season, and become spotted with rust from wind and rain. in leaving various sections of the building empty, the vegetation peeks through, like ‘the smile of a child with missing teeth,as D.LIM architects mentions.D.LIM architects blends crescent moon-shaped rest area into korean mountains

 

 

the project is dubbed ‘between azaleas and silvergrass’ due to the image of the azaleas and silvergrass emerging through the building gaps. on the other hand, it appears also as a metaphor for minds ‘vacillating’ between a spring outing or an autumn trip. 

 

‘we hoped the architecture would slowly meld with the surrounding nature. although the hwangmae mountain began as a pasture created to feed cattle, the azalea and silvergrass erected a sight so beautiful,’ the studio says.D.LIM architects blends crescent moon-shaped rest area into korean mountainsbetween royal azaleas and silver grass 3between royal azaleas and silver grass 4between royal azaleas and silver grass 5between royal azaleas and silver grass 6between royal azaleas and silver grass 7between royal azaleas and silver grass 8between royal azaleas and silver grass 10between royal azaleas and silver grass 11
