IMG_2902Kuk Je Gallery, Sam Chung Dong, Seoul

Every time I come to Seoul for businesses, it sort of feels like I am in this hidden unknown treasure Island.  In a taxi, or by walking, I find myself in such cool and brilliant moments.  If that is space or a business idea or that is an amazing architectural creation.

It has been quite positively overwhelming now that I am here with Emi and Gael to fully experience Seoul for days and nights. What this city can offer you has No such limit to it.

Here come have little taste of how Seoul is moving forward.

Samchung Dong

IMG_2467There are many big and small mountains in Seoul and it actually works as a such bonus point to challenge “how to build” and do business around. Hills are charming and add very interesting rhythm to the city line.

IMG_2472Again, do not miss what’s on upstairs!

IMG_2473Samchung dong is known for mix of over 150 years old of Traditional architecture and today’s most current living.  This is a Italian restaurant called ” 8 Step” again located in on a hill. Guess how many steps to have to walk over.

Sinsa Dong

& Myung Dong

IMG_2598Mui Mui Cafe and Restaurant, Sinsa dong. I believe Korean’s Love for Coffee is actually based on their Tea Culture. Take your time. Coffee dose not mean intaking caffeine to wake up at 4:00 pm to survive for the rest of the day at your office. Coffee means sitting down with friends to talk in such ambience and space. If you are an architect or have interest in design, a trip to Seoul to only visit coffee shops will make your eyes wide open. The possibilities are endless.

IMG_2588Cafe’s court yard offeres beautiful greenery to customers indoor.

IMG_2599Great glass wear.
