Kyungam Architects Associates Ltd. have developed '360 degree dreams' in Daewon

The dream of flight is blissful.Just the thought of floating in the sky brings enough motivation to attempt to achieve the dream. However this dream is now a reality.

For the best view "Cloud 360" alotted all its space in the sky. The ground level was left as open space and two main elevators transport visitors to the sky. The restaurant, cafe, and mediatech are all located in upper levels of the cloud observatory. This new observatory is sure to become the new landmark of the Sungnam district.

Daewon observatory forecasts the weather by using four different colour codes. Yellow is sunny day, green is cloudy day, red is snowy or rainy day and blue is windy day. The cloud shape observatory will become a new symbol of Sungnam. The open plan (low partition) ensures a wide view which allows the versatile use of space the floor finish consists of specific areas of glass, allowing for visual transparency and to give a floating feeling. The concept of a corridor between third and top floors defined as ‘walking through cloud’ and each floor offers a different view of interior spaces enabled from open floor plans.
