KOTE is a cultural space for boundary-crossing creators, named after the courtyard where the oak tree flowers bloom on Insa-dong 1-gil, the first street in the 16-gil of Insa-dong. Built as a furniture craft store in 1964, this space has been the birthplace of countless stories and memories. After a regeneration process starting in 2017, KOTE reopened on March 1, 2020, in commemoration of Korea's Independence Movement Day, as a place of culture and art, aiming to be an open space that provides peace of mind.
