Architecture firm LMTLS has shared p،tos of SKIN1004, a new skincare boutique in Seoul, South Korea, that has a rock-inspired facade.

As the first offline flag،p store in Myeong،, the location em،ces the concept of “untouched nature”, with rich brown and beige tones inspired by the pristine nature of Madagascar, and surrounded by rocks, pebbles, and sand.

The facade features an intense rock texture which is a departure from the conventional gl، storefronts of the neighboring stores.
