The Gilmosery Building Features a Rounded Shape

Seoul-based architecture studio Archium was enlisted to maximize the floor space of the Gilmosery building, an office space housing a software development firm. The design features a rounded concrete facade punctuated by metal balconies which thrust outwardly. The irregular, bowed shape was decided upon in order to comply with the strict planning regulations.

The outward slope of the facade allows for more interior floor space, such as wide corridors and mezzanines that look out toward the streets of the affluent Seocho district.

The narrow openings within the facade have been saturated with planters and sheet metal benches. Meanwhile, the interior has been left raw and minimalistic, featuring cast concrete walls and concrete floors which stretch out towards the terraces.
