The design concept “Land Meets Sky” reflects LH’s brand by creating a building that is harmonious both visually and technologically with the surrounding landscape. The project implements numerous sustainable methodologies at both the micro and macro scale. Features include a dramatic brise soleil on the southern façade of the tower and multi-storey interactive zones on the west that utilize an intelligent skin that draws cool air through the building. The project, located near a scenic river walk in Jinju South Korea, integrates public and private program areas (a primary security concern); into a seamless composition that promotes an egalitarian environment. Public sports fields are located south of standing structures to take advantage of sunlight for athletic events and daily use.
