The Hangil Book House brings a sensitivity to landscape and processional space to an art park outside of Seoul.

SHoP was commissioned in 2001 to design an exhibition hall and book house for Hangil Publishing, a premiere publisher of art and philosophy books. Echoing the Art Park’s interlaced landscape, the interior spaces of the Book House are linked to the surrounding hillside and wooded landscape. These paths create a fluid passage of space and movement by merging a variety of programs into a seamless sequence with unfolding views of the surrounding terrain.
