The concert hall, designed with dmp Architects, sits atop six mixed-use floors in a supertower designed by KPF Architects that contains offices, a hotel, residential units, retail, and other amenities. A major symphony hall integrated into a thriving mixed-use tower, Lotte Concert Hall is the first of its kind in Seoul, and will bring top-tier cultural events into the mix of activities residents and visitors expect from their experience in such a building. The design of the room features motorized orchestral riser stage lifts, automated lighting battens for theatrical lighting, deployable film screens and projectors, motorized variable acoustics banners, and extensive back-of-house support for visiting orchestras and artists.
