Seoul firm, BCHO architects, has finished construction on their seventeen story office building in Seoul, Korea.

Located adjacent to the historical Gyeoungbuk palace, Samchong Dong and the Insadong area, the design seeks to reference and respect the pre-existing nature of the site by maintainig the flow of the circulation on both the street and basement level.

The overall forms of the towers were influenced by the shape of an old Korean birch tree trunk, organic and sculpted as if moulded by flowing water. The reference allows for the structures to efficiently utilize the irregular site conditions which is composed of vaguely acute angles. Horizontally running structural lines exaggerate the dips and bulges of the undulating facade.
