Design Award

The project addresses its surroundings with a wonderful attempt to reciprocate with Hong Lim Park. There is a refreshing solution to the ground floor space and the podium. The typology of the city hotel is also reworked to make a single-loaded corridor that opens up to the greenery and the city beyond.

The greenery remains a visual applique on the smooth curtain wall of the towers when the evaporative cooling that the planting provides can be beneficial around the air-conditioned spaces of the hotel rooms and the offices.
