Co-living Housing Brand Episode design awards

Our Co-living housing brand, ‘Episode’ embodies our commitment in realizing SK D&D’s conceptual definition of ‘living spaces, the value of the individual, a microcosm of society, and connecting value’. As Korea’s largest co-living brand, Episode goes beyond supplier-driven space design to deliver a wide variety of residential experiences from the user perspective.

Each Episode location is distinguished by the unique attributes of its community: for example, in Gangnam which is characterized by modern corporate skyscrapers and young professionals, we created spaces with features promoting a work-life balance, and in Seongsu, known for its individual flair and style, we created community lounges reflecting the latest trends. As such, we are promoting a highly unique lifestyle that takes the demographics, geography and socio-culture of the setting into account. Such efforts were publicly recognized as Episode was proudly honored at the iF Design Award 2021 and the Global Design Awards 2021.
