The flagship for Seoul-based women?s specialty store Boontheshop comprises 55,000 sq ft spread over seven floors and through its development in response to the challenging constraints of the site has become something of an icon. Located in the prominent retail district of Cheongdam, largely characterized by its dense cacophophy of architectural styles, the developed project of an austere massing comprising two polished angular volumes in white marble serves as a powerful, calming statement.
