Covered Botanical Building

This is an extraordinary building located in Seoul,South Korea Architects Minsuk Cho and Kisu Park are the designers of this flora-clothed multifunctional structure. The building was done in Octomber 2007 with green roofs and living walls to another level.

Vegetation has been used to cover both the external and internal walls. It looks like the building is growing up from underneath and it’s sitted on an alley near by Seoul’s rapidly transforming Gangnam district.

This marvel house has three floors of the Ann Demeulemeester housing shop on the first floor, a restaurant above, and a Multi-Shop in the basement. The designers incorporate as much nature as possible into the structure within the constraints of a low-elevation, high-density urban environment.

The green species are geotextile plant and herbaceous pereunial for the living walls. The building is defined through the convergence of natural and artificial, interior and exterior, rather than demonstrating a stark contrast between the dualities.
