Professional Category Winner

David Chipperfield Architects for Amorepacific Headquarters

The new headquarters for Korea’s largest beauty company is located in the centre of Seoul, next to a former US military zone that is being transformed into the spacious public Yongsan Park. It is situated in a business district, and was part of a master plan for the largest high-rise development in Korea, that substantially altered the urban fabric of the Yongsan district.

The form of the building is both abstract and gestural. Focusing on a single, clear volume, the overall massing has been carefully developed around a central courtyard to maximize the effectiveness of natural ventilation and daylight. Three large openings connect this central void with the exterior surroundings, providing dramatic views both over the city and the distant mountains. As ‘hanging gardens’, these openings give scale and allow nature to extend from the adjacent park into all parts of the building.

Young Architects Winner

David Leech for A House in a Garden

This project is a contemporary translation of the ordinary suburban house. In this spirit, the house is built economically using everyday materials and techniques. These materials and techniques are amplified and exaggerated to become something at once ambiguous but familiar. 

This house is situated on a small site in a garden at the end of a short terrace of a 1940’s estate on the edge of Dublin city. The site is bounded to the south by a suburban hedge of hazel and privet, to the northwest by the blank wall of the original terrace and to the northeast by a high wall backing onto a public laneway.

The ground floor layout is derived from the planning requirements for outdoor amenity space. To maximise the presence of the garden it takes advantage of the excellent privacy provided by the thick hedgerow. At the ground level all the supporting walls are located within an internal cross-shaped core, allowing a curtain of glass and timber folding doors to wrap the exterior of the house for direct connection and access to the garden.
