Andaz and Piet Boon debut in Seoul

Famous Dutch designer Piet Boon has left his mark in Seoul. This time the talented and versatile Boon designed Andaz Seoul Gangnam, a new hotel in the South Korean capital. The launch of the new hotel marks the brand’s first location in the country.

The new hotel has 241 guestrooms, all offering views of the downtown district from floor-to-ceiling windows. Andaz Seoul Gangnam hotel is superbly located, with direct access to Apgujeong metro station and next to a bridge connecting northern and southern Seoul.

Piet Boon designed the Andaz Seoul Gangnam style to fuse traditional local culture and modern living. “The hotel's overall concept was inspired by ‘bojagi’, a traditional Korean wrapping cloth used in significant ceremonies and as gift wrap to preserve good luck, according to Korean folklore”, HotelManagement reports.

The hotel features several drinking and dining venues, such as a charcoal grill and a marble-clad show kitchen. The new property also boasts wellness facilities, including a 16-meter pool surrounded by a whirlpool and cold and warm baths, cabana-style niches, an infrared sauna, herbal bath, cool, warm and hot baths, marble-clad wet and dry saunas and ice fountains.
