While exploring the Sokcho in South Korea, the minimalist admirers may found the hidden gem at the Cheongan Beach - newly designed Tacit Cafe by Seoul-based Spatial Semiology.
Cafe Tacit has a compact size that makes the space feel more personal, comfortable, and warm, despite the weather conditions outside. It is a standalone cafe with glass windows that overlook the East Sea.
An off-white colour scheme and metallic accents permeate the interior. Most of the seats indoors and outdoors face the calming view of the ocean. The interior is treated with a very geometric approach. Each element is consequently formed around a square or rectangular shape, which gives the space a strong, coherent aesthetic.
Spatial Semiology focuses on composing space with signified objects and immaterial elements rather than a construction-centered approach. Considering the “before and after” of objects and space, the work focuses on composable and dispersible elements instead of the built and demolished. In daily life, elements appear through the method of revealing instead of hiding, which becomes semiology.
