Samsung-Dong Hyundai I-PARK
3 towers 47 story high housing project
total 346 housing units
Client: Hyundai Industrial Development Co.
Completed: Competition + Design: 1999 ~ 2000
Located in the densely developed residential district in the southern part of Seoul, near Han River, this project suggest three high rise towers to maximize the number of units having good view to the river and outdoor open spaces. In this project, outdoor spaces maintain a sense of nature and tranquility despite the urban density of the surrounding context. A series of smaller gardens and larger scale gardens furnishes the rich landscape between and under the buildings. Not only a compelling image, this project serves as an architectural landmark that redefines the urban context and elevates the aesthetic standards of the existing area.
