Located in Yongsan, Seoul, the new headquarters building was designed by world-renowned British architect David Chipperfield. Chipperfield was inspired by the white porcelain moon jar that carries an understated beauty without any fancy technique applied, while giving a comfortable and rich feeling. He represented the new headquarters building as a big moon jar in an elegant, yet simple shape. In particular, he designed the building surrounded by skyscrapers in the center of a city to express Korean beauty by reflecting his modern reinterpretation of traditional Korean houses. An example is the gardens surrounded by buildings that resemble the courtyard of a traditional Korean house. Furthermore, Amorepacific Group wanted to contribute to the architectural culture in Korea by designing the surroundings of the new headquarters by collaborating with young Korean architects. The underground pathway of Sinyongsan subway station – which is connected with the new headquarters building, was designed by stpmj (architects Lee Seung-taek and Lim Mi-jeong) and the park administration building behind the new headquarters was designed by architect Yang Soo-in.
In my opinion, this office building is really elegant. Because this area is “International Business District”, so every building here are typically tall and nothing special.
