A Hub for Recycling – Samoo creates a new hub for the recycling in Seoul
Samoo Architects & Engineers has won the design competition for Seoul Recycle Plaza with the design concept of ‘Story Box’, which aims to promote recycling of goods and the creation of a hub for gathering, processing, and re-marketing of recycled goods.
Located in the heart of Seoul, the Seoul Recycle Plaza is designed as a 5-storey 16,449m² complex facility that combines manufacture, exhibition, education, and resale. The facility allows visitors to experience the entire process of recycling in a functional and exciting atmosphere that encourages participation.
With the majority of facilities facing south towards the adjacent park, natural lighting is maximized with splendid open views. Instead of functional zoning separated by levels, similar programs are grouped into clusters for maximum efficiency and also to create a unique circulation path that encompasses both inside and outside of facilities. Voids and outdoor areas located throughout the clusters promote curiosity and diversity in spatial experiences while providing resting areas. Various kinds of reused materials have been applied on the exterior of the building to symbolize the new paradigm in recycling.
Designed as a landmark hub for citizens, the Seoul Recycle Plaza is scheduled to begin construction by December with a target opening year of 2015.
