Mixing contemporary Koren beauty with minimalist designs, the Owall Hotel in Seoul, South Korea, is a unique travel experience for relaxing and unwinding.
Designer Paik-Sun Kim created everything from the marble-clad exterior, to the bathrooms, putting an element of his personal design style into every detail. The hotel offers 32 guestrooms that all have an original spin on traditional Korean home designs, with natural finishes, locally sourced wood and Italian marble surfaces. Set near Gangnam's bustling nightlife, the design team took advantage of the local street artists for unique artwork and bold pops of color.
The Owall Hotel is a serene and luxurious travel option that offers the best of both worlds while being in walking distance to a bustling nightlife and being an internal escape from the noise.
