Located in the heart of Seoul, the Seoul Recycle Plaza is designed as a 5-storey 16,449m² complex facility that combines manufacture, exhibition, education, and resale. The facility allows visitors to experience the entire process of recycling in a functional and exciting atmosphere that encourages participation.

With the majority of facilities facing south towards the adjacent park, natural lighting is maximized with splendid open views. Instead of functional zoning separated by levels, similar programs are grouped into clusters for maximum efficiency and also to create a unique circulation path that encompasses both inside and outside of facilities. Voids and outdoor areas located throughout the clusters promote curiosity and diversity in spatial experiences while providing resting areas. Various kinds of reused materials have been applied on the exterior of the building to symbolize the new paradigm in recycling.
