“Arc & Book Jamsil Store” in Lotte World Mall

Arc & Book is a new type of urban complex cultural space that combines books with lifestyle. Based on four themes: “Daily, Weekend, Style, Inspiration,” carefully selected books and products are displayed and sold together, offering visitors a diverse lifestyle experience.

The signature feature of “Arc & Book” is its arch-shaped interior structure. The arch, which defies gravity and creates space with substantial materials, embodies both a structural form and a beautiful shape. Before modern times, humanity most frequently used the shape of the arch to create sacred or symbolic spaces.

The arch, an elemental form from the Roman Pantheon to Korea’s Seokguram Grotto, not only allows you to feel the essence of space but also serves as an important gateway that connects spaces from the streets to indoors in a city. At Arc & Book, they sought to express the arch of the bookstore that Arc & Book aspires to through a strong form.
