07.03.2017Topping out of Amorepacific

Construction on a new headquarters for Korean cosmetics company Amorepacific has reached a key stage with a topping out ceremony held on site in Seoul. The final beam was ceremonially raised to the top of the 22-storey tower. The building is designed around a central courtyard and has three large openings puncturing the squat volume, bringing light and air into an otherwise deep building plan. These openings will contain elevated gardens with generous views across the city. As well as office space, the new building will contain conference facilities and a new home for the Amorepacific Museum of Art. The project will be fully occupied in 2018.
