Twin Tree Tower is located southeast of Gyeongbokgung. It is a couple of 17 floor above ground and 8 floor below ground office buildings designed by BCHO Architects ( Byoung Soo Cho Architects  http://www.bchoarchitects.com/index.html ). Completed in 2012, it is one of very few designed office buildings in Seoul. The overall form of the buildings are referenced from an old birch tree trunk. V shapes mimic the tree cracks and breaks down the mass. This makes the building geometrically and spatially more interesting and not too heavy.

Tower A – Total floor area : 30,781 sqm  |  Building Area : 1,199 sqm  |  64m high

Tower B – Total floor area : 25,004 sqm  |  Building Area : 1,009 sqm  |  61m high

Address : 6, Yulgok-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, Korea (서울특별시 종로구 율곡로 6, 트윈트리타워)
