Lee Dong-joon tried innovative methods in architecture while working with his partner Melanie Stocker in Switzerland. The Korean-born architect has sought to balance the unique characteristics of local communities with universality and achieved top quality and exceptional design in several projects in Switzerland.

Border and the outer wall from a distance of 4.5m per second, the available interior space was not only about about 5m.

Unusual conditions provoked interesting and challenging our consciousness. Lying on the grass carpet of the long and narrow buildings around the house and vineyards are lined up. Rather, this esoteric environment, the architect's creative instincts awakening is an important factor. The most obvious feature of this building is in the selection of materials.

Corner of surfacing was selected to increase the continuity of the surface. Other horizontal surface using bronze aluminum windows.

Gwell Tower: Eroded Matrix - Seoul

This 15-story office tower with 10,200㎡ of floor area functions as a tower prototype in an urban environment where a row of towers faces a wide main street and pedestrian traffic on one side and low-density, low-rise residential urban fabric on the other side, a contrasting urban condition that is quite common in Asian metropolises.

On the southern side where the tower confronts low-rise, small-scale urban fabric, it mimics this spatial quality on its façade as if this horizontal urban fabric had been turned vertical and become tower. As a result, each office unit has an outdoor space, creating a unique “eroded” appearance in an otherwise very simple glass curtain wall tower.

A variety of trees will be planted in the 32 outdoor gardens, giving each its own characteristic. Together, the individual gardens will create the effect of a larger vertical garden 65 meters tall climbing the building.

The northern side of the building facing the main road is mainly composed of bold vertical stripes revealing vertical movements within the building, such as viewing elevators, the stairs, mechanicals shafts and electronic signage to reflect contrasting urban scale and speed.
