Samoo completes the new HQ building for Korea Appraisal Board

Korea Appraisal Board Headquarters

The Korea Appraisal Board is a government agency that specializes in evaluating a variety of goods including real estates which is vital for taxation and other procedures. As a government agency that has provided evaluation services for over 40 years, it needed a new HQ building that would support its growth and emphasize its image as an honest & trustful agency.

Designed by Samoo Architects & Engineers, the new HQ office provides the brand images required by the agency. The horizontal mass of the podium represents a solid foundation with double-height open lobby and public-service facilities that will welcome visitors. With transparent curtain-wall facades, activities at the podium will be projected to the street level which will be invigorated with landscape & lighting features.

Standing firmly above the podium will be the main tower with its unique geometric pattern symbolizing unity & confidence of the agency. The facade with its interlocking curtain-wall & stone panels were specifically arranged to minimize cooling-loads while maximizing natural lights into the office areas. A vertical atrium located between 5~10th floor allows natural ventilation through stack-effects. A bluebox inserted on the 10th floor provides indoor-gardens and viewing platforms that promotes interaction between employees of the agency.

Innovative facade, ice-storage system, PV panels and other technologies are integrated through a central Building Management System that aims to provide the highest level of sustainability. And with a complete set of facilities including R&D, auditorium, and courtyards, which are coordinated with the work-patterns of the agency, the new HQ building will provide a new basis for sustainable growth.
