Gettys completes design of Sheraton Seoul D-Cube City Hotel

Specialist hospitality design firm Gettys completed the interior design of the Sheraton Seoul D-Cube City Hotel in the Korean capital’s technology center of Guro.

Gettys won the design tender from Korean conglomerate Daesung Group to design the 269-key full-service hotel that is a part of the Daesung D-Cube City project.

A sky lobby is located on the 41st floor, offering views of the city and the countryside. Artistic concepts are seen in both ceiling structures and in the design of custom lighting fixtures and furniture.

For the all-day dining restaurant, Gettys incorporated the local design aesthetic with the use of bojagi, a patchwork of fabrics traditionally used to wrap food. These patterns and commonly found colors were also incorporated into the interior architecture and FF&E components.

Of the 269 rooms, no two guestrooms on any floor are alike due to the shape of the building. Gettys alluded to traditional Korean homes, many having an indoor and outdoor space. Gettys also created rooms for the floors exclusively for female guests called Her Rooms.

Gettys was also tasked to provide fitness facilities and a spa. Golf memberships were similarly being offered, with an indoor golf driving range and rentable golf lockers found between the health club and swimming pool on the 27th floor.

Meeting facilities include a grand ballroom and pre-function area, with two additional floors of meeting rooms, additional pre-function space, a bridal or VIP room, and a traditional Paebak room for traditional wedding ceremony rituals.
