세계 최고 호텔로 선정된 '힐링 스테이 코스모스 리조트'가 한국에?


영국 유명 건축·디자인 잡지 ‘월페이퍼’ 발표

‘월페이퍼 디자인 어워드 2019’ 선정


   최근 울릉도의 한 호텔이 세계 최고의 호텔로 뽑혔다. 영국의 유명 건축·디자인 잡지 ‘월페이퍼’가 지난달 발표한 ‘월페이퍼 디자인 어워드 2019’의 결과다. 건축 분야에서는 호텔·주거·공공건물 중 최고를 뽑는데, 포항이나 강릉에서 배 타고 3시간 반을 가거나 그나마 있는 뱃길도 기상악화로 툭하면 끊기는 울릉도에 들어선 호텔이 신기록을 세웠다. 호텔 이름은 ‘힐링 스테이 코스모스 리조트’다. 지난해 4월 정식 오픈했는데 김찬중 건축가(더 시스템 랩 대표)가 설계했고, 건축주는 코오롱 그룹의 계열사인 코오롱글로텍이다. 



  

하얀 건물은 완공 당시부터 전 세계 콘크리트 학계를 놀라게 했다. 월페이퍼의 표현을 빌자면 건물은 거대한 조개 내부처럼 휘어졌다. 위에서 보면 소용돌이 같기도, 무수히 겹친 꽃잎 같기도 하다. 


콘크리트 건물인데 철근을 안 썼기에 가능했다. 건물 두께가 12㎝다. 멀리서 보면 종잇장처럼 자유자재로 구부러진 호텔의 곡선이 가능했던 것은 ‘초고강도 콘크리트(UHPC·Ultra-High Performance Concrete)’로 지었기 때문이다. 콘크리트 자체가 구조체 역할을 한다. 배합할 때 강섬유를 섞어 만든 신소재다.

통상 UHPC는 공장에서 제작해 현장 조립한다. 그런데 이 호텔은 ‘세계 최초 UHPC 현장 타설’의 기록을 보유했다. 미리 현장에 만들어 둔 거푸집에 UHPC를 부어 통째로 하루 만에 타설했다. 콘크리트 건물의 경우 철근을 연결해 가며 층층이 쌓아 올리기 마련이다. 아파트 공사 현장을 생각하면 된다. 

  

철근이 없는 UHPC는 층층이 쌓아 올릴 수 없었다. 굳으면서 고압을 발생시키는 UHPC를 고려해 거푸집도 특별히 제작했다. UHPC를 한 번에 부어 이 오묘한 모양의 호텔을 통째로 완성하기까지 건축가는 “드라마를 썼다”고 말했고, 콘크리트 학계는 “콘크리트의 대발견”이라고 놀랬다. 독일에서 강연 요청도 들어왔다고 한다.

천처럼 얇고 가볍지만 튼튼한 콘크리트의 발견이 우리 삶에 어떤 영향을 끼치게 될까. 철과 유리는 초고층 건물을 지을 수 있게 했고, 기둥과 벽을 분리했던 근대 건축은 ‘가로로 긴 창’을 내게 했다. 건축은 혁명이다. 천처럼 얇은 콘크리트가 어떤 혁명적 공간을 만들어 나갈지 궁금해진다.

Perched on a cliff edge on the volcanic Ulleungdo Island, which lies 350km east of Seoul in the Sea of Japan, is this striking retreat by Seoul-based architects The System Lab. With a steep sugar loaf-shaped peak as a backdrop, it comprises Villa Kosmo, a private four-bedroom villa with two saunas and an infinity hot tub, and Villa Terre, which houses seven guest rooms, all with sea views and sweeping ceilings. Snow-white concrete walls swoop and swirl like the unusually potent chi energy elds that locals believe flow through the island.


Some of the resort’s high-ceilinged rooms – sparsely furnished with a severe white palette – also curve and bend like the interior of a giant seashell. It’s no surprise that the diversions here are almost entirely nature-based, taking full advantage of the island’s pristine haul of sea caves, waterfalls and ancient forests. Equally arresting is the work of chef Sun-jin Hwang (ex-El Bulli and Noma), whose menu features Dokdo shrimps with an oyster emulsion, and a short rib cooked sous-vide in red wine for 40 hours.




Location: 88-13, Chusan-gil, Buk-myeon, Ulleung-gun, Gyeongsangbuk-do

Design: The System Lab

Room Rates: From £237


BEST NEW OR RENOVATED HOTEL SHORTLIST


Amanyangyun

Shanghai, China

When entrepreneur Ma Dadong learned that an ancient camphor forest and a number of historic villages near his hometown of Fuzhou, Jiangxi, were going to be demolished after the construction of a new dam, he decided to take action. This meant relocating 10,000 ancient trees and 50 houses, brick by brick, to a new ten-hectare plot 700km away. Fifteen years later, the transplanted forest is flourishing and the historic homes have just opened as the new Amanyangyun resort. Kerry Hill Architects transformed the buildings into 13 villas and added 24 courtyard suites, with access to a private garden and swimming pool. The houses’ original soaring ceilings, timber beams and stone carvings have been updated with local wood furnishings and subtle Asian details such as lattice screens and lamps. Alongside a cinema and a sprawling spa, there is also Nanshufang, a recreation of the scholars’ studios of 17th-century China, where guests can experience tea ceremonies and learn traditional crafts such as calligraphy. Dining options include Lazhu, which specialises in spicy dishes from Jiangxi, the original home of the property’s camphor trees and ancient villas.




Location: 6161 Yuanjiang Road, Minhang District

Design: Kerry Hill Architects

Room Rates: From CNY5,000 ($728)


The Jaffa

Tel Aviv, Israel


The Jaffa Hotel, Israel


 

Housed in a renovated 19th-century hospital combined with a substantial new build, The Jaffa is a collaboration between Aby Rosen and hotel group Marriott, who enlisted the help of British designer John Pawson and local practice Ramy Gill. Over a decade in the making, the 120-room property features grand columns with Corinthian cornices that form a stone canopy above a minimalist marble reception desk in the lobby, and ornate stained-glass windows that throw ashes of mottled colour across austere furnishings. The hotel’s rooms reflect the warm, neutral tones of Jaffa’s ubiquitous stonework, while the furniture nods to the Bauhaus style for which Tel Aviv is renowned. Old and new sit in harmony on the outside, too, as the façade of the old hospital, with its arched windows and sturdy architectural detailing, meshes with the robust, angular lines of the contemporary wing. And while the area is home to some of the city’s best eateries, guests will find a diverse range of restaurants within The Jaffa, from a Jewish deli to a New York-style Italian.




Location: 2 Louis Pasteur Street

Design: John Pawson and Ramy Gill

Room Rates: From $500


Verride Palácio Santa Catarina  

Lisbon, Portugal


 


Located next to the Santa Catarina viewpoint in Lisbon’s hip Chiado neighbourhood, this boutique hotel is housed in a handsome 18th-century palácio boasting panoramic views of the Tagus. In restoring the interiors, architect Teresa Nunes da Ponte walked a fine line between protecting the ancient but still beautiful bones, while injecting a sophisticated modernity. This has meant meticulously restoring the intricate mouldings, wrought-iron staircase, ornamental ceilings, and Portuguese and Greek marble, as well as the original blue-and-white azulejo tiles, which feature in some of the suites. The hotel’s 18 spacious rooms feature a muted palette, low-slung grey sofas, slender ‘AJ’ floor lamps and de Gournay silk wall panels. Meanwhile, gastro bar Suba serves up king crabs with a citrus and guacamole cream, and spicy shrimp aguachile.




Location: Rua de Santa Catarina 1

Design: Teresa Nunes da Ponte Arquitectura

Room Rates: From €500


Tsingpu Retreat

Yangzhou, China


 


Located near Yangzhou’s scenic Slender West Lake, Tsingpu Retreat is a 20-room hotel designed by Shanghai-based studio Neri & Hu, who transformed the site, originally dotted with small lakes and old, abandoned buildings, into a calm grid of low-slung grey-bricked pavilions, courtyards and decorative pools that call to mind traditional hutong houses. The rooms are calm oases lined with terrazzo, white oak, walnut and steel, and kitted out with furniture and lighting custom designed by Neri & Hu for this project. Public spaces, which include an art gallery, theatre and teahouse, are framed by broad timber overhangs that catch the light and slivers of sky, accentuating the sense of peace. At the restaurant, located in a former warehouse, guests can sample local Yangzhou cuisine, including deep-fried mandarin sh with sweet and sour sauce and homemade meatballs, at long communal tables.
