OASE is a minimal space located in Seoul, South Korea, designed by plainoddity. The project is for a complex wellness space where guests enjoy a leisurely lifestyle focused around recovery. The first floor is filled with the concept of maximalism, and the second floor simplicity. On the first floor, guests can enjoy group classes such as pilates, meditation, and yoga based on ‘balance of body and mind’, as well as a community lounge and exhibition space. On the second floor, there are places where guests can feel quiet and relaxation through the meditation room and a tea house that requires reservations. The design was conceived to be as simple as possible without artifice, and smooth arches were used in the upper ceiling of the counter and at the entrance to the tea house, giving the effect of concentrating on the space itself.
