Lotte World Tower

Lotte World Tower

Lotte Hotel

This 555-meter monument to Seoul’s skyline reaches heights never before seen in Korea and joins the ranks of the world’s top ten tallest buildings

Elegance of form was one of the prime objectives, following Lotte's desire to bestow a beautiful monument to the capital city skyline. The sleek tapered form of the 123-story tower stands out from the city's rocky, mountainous topography, and is organized around a stacked mixed-use program, comprising retail, office, officetel, and a 7-star luxury hotel. The building's top ten stories are earmarked for extensive public use and entertainment facilities including an observation deck and rooftop café.

KPF's design melds a modern aesthetic with forms inspired by the historic Korean arts of ceramics, porcelain, and calligraphy. The tower's uninterrupted curvature and gentle tapered form is reflective of Korean artistry. The seam that runs from top to bottom of the structure gestures toward the old center of city.

The building design is seeking LEED Gold accreditation, a measure of the client’s commitment to environmental responsibility. Sustainable design strategies incorporated into the design include photo-voltaic panels, wind turbines, external shading devices and water harvesting systems.
