The winning design for this 700 unit, three-tower residential development project, situated on one of the most prominent sites in all of Seoul, called for dramatic solutions from its architects.
The two front towers engage one another in repose, addressing the river and business district to the South. The paired sky windows give the towers a pleasant grandeur and airiness while providing a substantial space for the pool terrace, an oasis in the sky. In the siting of the towers careful consideration was given to the magnificent views of the adjoining Seoul Forest and the Han River. The vast natural surroundings led the designers toward a luxuriously landscaped base that creates welcoming public space for inhabitants of the complex and visually connects the development to the forest preserve.
The expectation is that the project will lead the housing market in Seoul to embrace innovative new archetypes in residential design which will contribute to the city’s architectural renaissance.
