The Swiss Hanok (Embassy premises)

Switzerland has built a new Embassy in Seoul. This reconstruction of the Embassy is a symbol of our longstanding friendship with the Republic of Korea and of Switzerland’s sincere desire to further expand our excellent and mutually beneficial relations in all fields.

Architect Nicolas Vaucher presents the Swiss Embassy at the Policy Symposium for Hanok 2022 “K-House for the Next Generation - RE-Think Hanok” organized by Seoul Metropolitan Government Hanok Policy Division. Designed by Burckhardt+Partner, the building is a contemporary interpretation of the traditional Korean "Hanok" house, that meets the requirements of an embassy building. It represents a skilful blend of Swiss and Korean building culture.
