With the ramp with no boundary, various activities can take place with the needs of everyone who wishes to use it.

The ramp provides various program such as book shelves, rest area, seats for performances.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
According to the building code, wheelchair ramp is not included in the building area and floor area. This building code became a motive for the design. In general, for certain parts of the building or entrances, wheelchair ramps and elevators or lifts have to be installed.

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challenge of this project was to overcome the small gross floor area. Given gross floor area was about 300 sqm but our client, Nowon-district government requested many programs to put in, such as book cafe, community center, offices. So we came up to use the idea of wheelchair ramp. According to the building code, wheelchair ramp doesn't include in the building area and floor are. We were able to use bigger spaces to put many programs and it also became the barrier free architecture.
