London based specialist food and beverage design studio， Blacksheep has just completed work on The Cooking Library in Seoul， for Hyundai Card (HC)， a five-storey space that celebrates the joys of cooking. Working in collaboration with Choi Wook of One O One Architects， Blacksheep were commissioned to bring the place to life. The inner spaces of the HC Cooking Library have been designed to connect organically over five floors. Each space is distinguished by the experiences offered within and is linked to the next space through stimulation of the senses， by scent， sound and sight. Materiality takes on design characteristics of the level in which it belongs and visitors are guided by subtle cues running through the Library.

The ground floor is home to a deli， shop， bakery and café， all open to HC card members and the general public. Designed as the first taste of the Library’s culinary experiences and dedicated to food， visitors are drawn in through the sensory displays of artisan bread and patisseries in the deli， by European herbs， spices， cheese and charcuterie in the shop， by exotic baked goods in the bakery， including Portuguese Barco， and fresh coffee in the café.

The Recipe Room
在食谱室，精心设计的照明和人字形地板的拼装提供了温暖的归属感。来自 Menu 的枝形吊灯位于手工缝制的皮椅上方。家具配件的设计和橡木书架完美的契合，突出了陈列在个区域的书籍。
In the Recipe Room， crafted， low-level domestic lighting and a herringbone pattern wooden floor provides a sense of domestic familiarity. A Tribeca Harrison chandelier from Menu sits above the &tradition Raft table and hand sewn leather chairs by Gemla， are covered in leather from the oldest leather factory in Sweden. Domestic accessories such as weighing scales and Max Lamb for 1882 basalt accessories are placed on solid oak shelving， to break up the display of books.

在毗邻厨房的外部空间，一个玻璃“温室”被用作室外用餐空间。充满活力的红陶铺装同样运用了人字形的拼接方式，与户外的藤制编织家居形成对比。同时温室中种植了郁郁葱葱的绿植，包括一些常用的香料，可以为 HC 烹饪图书馆提供时令的材料。
Adjacent to the Kitchen， an architectural， glass-framed canopy creates ‘The Greenhouse，’ Blacksheep conceived the idea for this space as an outdoor/indoor dining environment. Vibrant terracotta paving is laid in a stacked herringbone pattern and contrasts with tactile woven outdoor furniture， while a lush adjacent allotment provides a supply of plants to feed the HC Cooking Library with seasonal ingredients.

The kitchen space on the basement floor is an inspiring pantry of abundance， offering insight into a working kitchen encased by Crittle reeded glass panels. The space also includes oversized wine displays to the rear wall of the storeroom， formed from a layered pattern of copper， blackened steel and perforated panels. White tiles sourced from British tile supplier Grestec clad the kitchen interior and contrast with grey polished plaster walls.
