This project brings South Korea’s first LEED-certified hotel to the emerging metropolis of Incheon.
The five-star hotel is located in the heart of the New Songdo City business node. It plays a vital role in characterizing the urban landscape of this growing city.
The hotel offers 319 premium guest rooms. The top floors feature a luxurious presidential suite and distinctive executive lounge. Hotel amenities, including two ballrooms, function rooms, a spa, gym facilities, a covered swimming pool, two restaurants and a lounge bar, are located on the five lower levels.
HOK designed the facades of the guestroom tower to be broken into four-story-tall, two-room-wide modules that are fractured and angled further away from direct solar radiation. Each of these modules is shaded by two, four-story-tall perforated aluminum sunshades. The lower, amenity wing is wrapped in a reflective, metal roof that shades portions of the glazed facades below.
The Sheraton Incheon Hotel is part of a group of buildings that includes a convention center, a 65-story mixed-use residential and office tower, the Northeast Asia Trade Tower and a retail mall.
