Daegu Church South Korea
Mission International is a church that outreaches its ministry to young generations especially university students. The church has unique programs different from other churches in Korea. Mainly, it serves people not in Korean but rather in English. Its language benefi ts young people to learn more about English, and at the same time they will learn to see the world through the language and also importantly good news from the Bible. Because of this different set of ministry, its design requirement was to be new and different. Not to mention, it was to base limited budget requirement for construction as well.
In order to use the maximum site area within the budget, initial design began with functional requirements of setback and parking circulation at the ground fl oor area. So, 1st fl oor area was defi ned by the space required for parking and use of common space. 2nd fl oor includes cafeteria and offi ce area. 3rd fl oor was planned for classrooms for students during week days. The fi nal 4th fl oor had been set to follow the required capacity of occupancies 250 for the church service for Sunday service.
As a challenge all the time, limited budget with aesthetic expectation has been long debate to fi nd exterior and interior materials to choose for limited selections. The featured metal fi ns attached to the exterior curtain wall was compromised with its size and detailed connection materials. Regardless of all, we believe that its unique and simple design idea enhance the beauty of the building in the region.
