In 2019, we created a site-adaptive concept, allowing us to express and execute projects at any location. We transformed a deteriorated space into a vibrant creative interspace, combining meetups, mini-events, workshops, exhibitions, and a fusion café.

This open-closed policy continued for two years, leading us to reevaluate our strategies and adapt to the changing world.
