Haeahn Architecture won a competition to design Seoul’s Smart Work Center and Press Center at the site of the National Assembly Complex in Yeouido, according to ArchDaily.

The South Korean firm worked in collaboration with New-York-based H Architecture on the 23,750 sm concept. The building will have a low height, which will keep it hidden among trees but also provide views of the National Assembly building. A courtyard will be placed in the center of the structure.

The proposed building will contain:

  • A press center with a briefing room and a broadcast facility
  • A smart work center, which is a remote workplace for commuting government officials
  • Supplementary offices
  • Underground parking
  • Other facilities that will include a restaurant, a banquet hall, and retail shops
