JSA’s plan for the public spaces of Ichon Rex weaves together towers, landscape and a shared community facility. The design seeks to animate the urban ground plane and define the transition from the dense urban fabric lined with retail on the northern boundary of the site with the expansive Han riverfront bordering the south. A hierarchy of path types, denoted by different densities of grasscrete pavers, wind through the site and under a planted canopy, which shelters pedestrians between the complex’s three high-rise towers.Planted light wells connect below-grade facilities with the the street level landscape.Together, the green canopy and community building shelter a series of indoor and outdoor landscaped spaces that spatially and socially link the buildings into a cohesive whole, encouraging frequent and spontaneous interaction among neighbors.An outdoor staircase invites residents to visit the green roof that covers the community building. Here, a winding path planted with low-maintenance indigenous plants connects a series of platforms from which residents can enjoy panoramic views of the Han River. A second covered canopy provides shelter for an outdoor café.Ichon Rex Residential Complex is the result of a successful collaboration by four participating architects. RMJM designed the three residential towers; H Associates contributed the sky bridge which connects the three towers above ground; Joel Sanders Architect planned all public amenities at the ground level and below, including landscape, lobbies, parking, and community facilities; and Korean firm Haeahn coordinated all of these efforts as the local associate architect.
