LAVA– Laboratory for Visionary Architecture designed Jeju Hills Hotel Resort for Korea – the island will house a luxurious hotel designed as another landform. JeJu is a mountainous volcanic landform located in the south east of South Korea. The island acts as a major holiday destination for South Koreans, as well as the Chinese and Japanese, as a result of its unique location between the three East Asian nations. The beautiful natural landscape and its seasonal variation attracts locals and holidaymakers alike. The island is home to the world heritage Hallasan volcano and lava tubes, a national icon and tourist destination.

The hotel is designed as a landform. ‘Valleys and canyons’, generated as a topological structure, form 2000 rooms around a terracing facade and internal courtyard rooms around interconnected open atrium spaces. These spaces connect to form a continuous green landscape throughout the interior of the hotel creating a natural atmosphere. This landscape continues to the canyon between the two sinuous residential zones, accentuating the connection with the beachfront forest over which they look. The whole development forms continuous landscape, within and out. The hotel also houses a cinema, restaurants, aquarium, waterfront promenade and marina seamlessly interact with a continuous shopping and retail experience. These activities seamlessly interact with the natural beauty of JeJu.

The development is 600,000 square meters in total, with the highest volumes reaching 77 meters. Organic in form, it represents the perfect continuation of the natural landscape of the island, minimizing visual impact.
