The new office building of The Korea Teachers Pension Head Office was established to bring the unification of three bodies for the stability and efficiency of educational pursuits: Teachers, The Korean Teachers Pension Head Office and the country. Tomoon Architects and Engineers have designed this facility with these three organizations in mind to achieve this goal in Naju, South Korea. Read on for more on this project after the break.

The podium that acts as the entrance to the building is an extension of the urban axis that extends the urban context of Naju into the offices.  This move accentuates the visual recognition of the urban landmark as an intrinsic part of the city.  The building stands at the intersection of two axes, configured to the street that offers the greatest abundance of sunlight and ventilation.
