Kyobo Tower

Kyobo Tower in Seoul, South Korea The site area for the new office tower is located in Seocho, Seoul down town, at the southwest corner of two main streets crossing – Gangnam-Dae-Road and Sa-Pyong- Road.

        The idea was to create a very massif construction, compact and with apparently blind fronts to be in contrast with the glass and steel structured buildings in its surroundings. Straight as a medieval tower, this new and strong architectural presence shall help people to get orientated within the modern city.

        The huge brick-clad tower in this particular corner setting, underlines through its pattern and scale proportion, the importance of its location. The twin towers are set on a base which extends on the first three upper floors giving shape to the main volume of the new building.

        A spare room of 18 m of depth separates the towers to allow a bright day light infiltration in the interiors on all levels. Each tower is subdivided through vertical cuts to underline the vertical development of the construction.
