Hyundai Cooking Library, Seoul, South Korea

A five-storey cooking school in the heart of Seoul

Interiors | Strategy

The Cooking Library is Hyundai’s tactile antidote to digital life. Here, in Seoul’s high-pressure Gangnam District, foodies lose themselves in a sensory world of artisanal skill and exquisite taste.

The interior of this seven-story homage to food is entirely ours. From the ground-floor deli, bakery, and café, through hands-on training and discussion areas to the open-air veg beds on the upper levels, we devised a light-filled journey of discovery. At every stage the building tugs at your senses, yet the mood remains calm and collaborative. It’s the heat of the kitchen fused effortlessly with the mindfulness of the library.
