Text description provided by the architects. Traditional Korean-style house Café ‘Bidam’.
Bidam is a project that renews Hanok into a performance hall and a café, with the concept of “Korean Royal Orchestra”.
The stage is located in the courtyard for the public to enjoy a show with drinks.
The seats are created by extending and overlapping the terrace. The screen behind the stage acts as an orchestral shell, and the wall is made of Korean materials designed to create rich reverberation.
The iconic colors of the orchestra costume which are yellow, blue and red are used as lighting and finishes. It is intended to provide a space where visitors can feel Korean emotion in harmony with traditional and modern architecture.
