Mecanoo architects designed a building with an unusual openwork facade that hides multi-colored stripes. It has become a new attraction in the South Korean city of Busan .jpg” />
Busan is the second largest city in South Korea after Seoul. Busan has one of the largest ports in the country, as well as many beaches and hot springs, which are popular with tourists from all over the world (the editors of ELLE DECORATION also visited this city at one time).
Like most large cities in Southeast Asia, Busan is actively developing, construction is constantly being carried out here. One of South Korea's largest insurance companies, Heungkuk, has recently moved into a new headquarters designed for it by local bureau Mecanoo.
The building is notable, first of all, for its façade, which favorably distinguishes it from the homogeneous surrounding buildings. The office tower seems to be “dressed” in an openwork metal frame, behind which stripes are hidden in the company's corporate colors – black and hot pink. The building looks especially impressive at night, when the lights are on inside. It also has a spacious rooftop terrace that offers beautiful views of Busan and has already become a favorite hangout for the firm's employees.
