The Hotel KHAN was erected on a busy street corner in Seoul, South Korea. The hotel sits on a unique piece of land, overlooking an intersection of busy highways, and steps away from the financial district as well as a heavily populated residential area. To gain greater access to all these resources, The Hotel KHAN was built in the shape of a parallelogram.

Apart from being the tallest building in the area, the Hotel KHAN brings more attention to itself with its color-altering facade. The color of the exterior changes depending on how much sunlight is reflected, allowing for the entire mood of the building and surrounding area to be fluctuate. The interior of the hotel is also quite impressive and takes inspiration from surrounding condominiums with hotel rooms that are large, spacious loft-like units.
