Suwon, Korea, 2008-2012
I’Park City covers approximately 33.5 ha and includes 88 apartment buildings.
Both colour and form are applied throughout the I'Park City site in a manner which demarcates a sense of place. The colour strategy visually links clusters of buildings and landscape parcels into a series of neighbourhoods, thus subdividing the site into 6 distinctive zones. Organised longitudinally from north to south, the building façades are divided into 5 different design typologies: City, Village, Field, Water, and Park are the names given to describe the different designs. The blend of programme facilities and unique residential buildings, set within a coherent landscape strategy, provides a plethora of different lifestyles.
