Korea’s largest insurance company commissioned the design of this corporate employee training and recreation center in a remote setting. The center contains 600 dormitory rooms, classrooms, lecture rooms, an auditorium, a gymnasium, cafeterias and relaxation lounges.

The spectacular view from the steeply sloping site was the inspiration for the design. The building's form consists of two parts: a serpentine wall, which follows the mountain’s contour; and another form which steps down the mountainside. At the junction of the building’s two portions, an entry portal through the building frames the breathtaking view of the valley and peaks.

TSKP STUDIO's design sought to merge a sizable structure into the beauty of the setting. The goal was achieved through the building materials, color and form. Locally produced brick, which faces the serpentine wall in alternating layers of red and gray blends with the area's native clay tones. The building's form undulates with the natural contours of the site, evoking the image of an ancient fortress wall.
