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 ). 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.

Site Area : 4,430 sqm

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)
