The Royal TOTO Company Building _ The spatial organization of the Royal TOTO building originates from the characteristics of the site on which it is built. It is deeply associated with the topography and geographical features of the site, as well as the macroscopic landscape of Seoul. The building site, situated in the southeastern corner of a grid-patterned block that was drawn regardless of topography in the Gangnam district in Seoul, has different levels on its four sides. Thus, the fact that the site itself is already spatially distinct has made us happy.
Boards extended from the entrances to the front and rear merge together through the vacant space, and are connected to stairways formed in accordance with rules innate to the site.
