Archive, opened Nov.2017, a place renovating warehouse into industrial-tyle Café
and event space, is located in Seongsu-dong,Seoul’s shoemaking district.
By 1980s, Seongsu-dong was home to many businesses in handmade shoemaking industry. But as mass production of shoes started to take over, Seongsu-dong district decayed. After Seoul designated Seongsu-dong a site for urban regeneration, young artists started to settle in the neighborhood’s deteriorating industrial spaces and repurposed them into cafes, restaurants, and craft workshops. Baesan is one of the place as well.

Decorated with edgy art installations, Baesan is hip, industrial-stylr event space ideal for product launches or exhibitions.
