Residential Architecture: Block H by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates in Yongsan International Business District: “..a luxury five-star accommodations with high-end services. the 385-meter-tall-tower sits on a 14 600-square-meter site on the northeastern border of the sector. the hotel is situated to mediate the transition between the 665 meter height of the landmark office tower to the northwest and the lower scale residential blocks beyond..the shape of the development projects from the center into three distinct wings to provide the apartments and hotel rooms with natural light, dramatic views and privacy. cascading towards the han river, each section asymmetrically projects from the base to orient views of the south. the mid-level faces east to the yongsan park where the high division is directed to the nam-sam historic district and adjacent landmark tower to the north. the design guarantees that the guest rooms have a large corner view from the living space, while maximizing its solitude from the adjacent unit..” Luxury hotel and apartments in Seoul, South Korea..
