KHVATEC HEADQUARTERS IN SEOUL, BY THE SYSTEM LAB

When the architects of The System Lab were invited to the concept design phase in 2010, it was well known that the area (located in Seoul, South Korea) would be transformed into a shopping area within the next 10 years.

The client required three important factors in the design. First, the buildings should show a strong corporate image without standing out in height to the surrounding buildings. Second, consider that this company requires great security, therefore you must reduce the openings.

And finally, include a small theater and a gallery for employees and the public in relation to the cultural context that will continue from the Seoul Art Center (bearing in mind that the Seoul Art Center is very close to Khavatec’s headquarters).

The architects came to the conclusion that a structural network system on the facade would be the solution. On each floor, there are 2 floating decks that act as a structural beam and an outdoor terrace for office employees who work indoors more than 8 hours a day.

As the covers do not overlap with each other, they are excluded from the total surface area of the plant and provide visual communication between users. In addition, the office space is surrounded by an extra layer reducing your exposure and increasing your safety.

This arrangement also allows different identities of the urban landscape in each level. In addition, adjusting the frame intervals and density minimizes the heterogeneity of the pre-existing context.
