ST国际和SongEun艺术与文化基金会于近期宣布,其由国际知名建筑事务所赫尔佐格&德梅隆设计的新总部及文化场地“ST / SongEun大厦”将于今年9月在首尔正式向公众亮相。该项目是Herzog & de Meuron在韩国的第一个建成项目,致力于成为首尔重要的新地标。

ST International Corporation and SongEun Art & Cultural Foundation have announced the opening of their new office building and cultural site – ST / SongEun Building – designed by the internationally acclaimed Swiss architecture firm, Herzog & de Meuron, launching this September in Seoul. This project is the architecture firm’s first realized project in Korea, and their hope and aim is to establish this building to become a new and significant landmark in Seoul.

Herzog & de Meuron为ST国际和SongEun艺术与文化基金会打造的新总部和艺术空间致敬了大量的建筑主题,同时与当地语境、文化和环境保持了强烈又和谐的联系。建筑坐落在清潭洞的中心地带——首尔最繁华的商业中心和时尚中心之一。项目旨在以新文化锚点的身份进一步吸引游客,从而提升韩国艺术家以及国际当代艺术场景的曝光度。

Herzog & de Meuron was selected to design the new building due to their carefully considered and organically crafted approach to their design process. The building pays an homage to a plethora of architectural motifs whilst maintaining a strong and harmonious connection to local contexts, cultures and environments. Located in the heart of Cheongdam Dong, the building will be nestled in one of the busiest commercial and luxury fashion epicenters in Seoul. The project aspires to become a cultural anchor that will further attract visitors and broaden the exposure around Korean artists as well as the international contemporary art scene.

One of the most prominent design features of the project is the concrete surface that is textured by using formwork of rotated wooden boards. This motif is an ode to the meaning behind the name SongEun, which is translated as “hidden pine tree”, in which the patterns and veins of these wooden boards add a tactile quality to the volume. This design element is sharply contrasted, yet seamlessly integrated with the building’s sharp, geometric, minimal, monolithic structure, which is 11 stories high and 5 floors underground and spans more than 8,000 square meters. The art spaces on the lower floors open up towards the main street through a long window. The upper floors are dedicated office spaces with another long window at the top.
