This is the embassy building of Oman which locates in Seoul, South Korea and it is very significant project as a symbol and the center of communication between the two country.
Oman is one of the country in East Asia which has arab culture and we try hard to respect their culture and tradition and reflect them to the design.
Currently, the exiting site is very closely located to the neighborhood; it is hard to organize the space, therefore, we designed the air circulating zone as buffer space with neighborhood.
Also, a strip organization was planned for the embassy concerning the light. We want to design the Embassy as a living body with fine view, using the Oman traditional identical signs and landscaping.
