    Sebitseom Island, alternatively stylized as “sevit,” is a cultural complex and landmark created as part of the Hangang Renaissance Project promoted by the Seoul Metropolitan Government in 2006 to provide citizens with a unique waterside space to enjoy the Hangang River. It comprises the world’s first-ever floating building on a body of water.

    “Sebit” in its name means “three lights” in Korean, and like the three primary colors red, green and blue, the three islets of Sebitseom Island—Chaebitseom (“chavit”), Solbitseom (“solvit”), and Gabitseom (“gavit”)—are expressed as beautiful structures that enhance the landscape of the Hangang River and Seoul, the capital of Korea. The later-built Yebitseom (“yevit”) was added to Sebitseom Island to now comprise four islets in total.

    Chavit features several cultural spaces as well as restaurants and a buffet, which are frequently visited by families dining out. Solvit’s multi-purpose area for waterside leisure attracts citizens who want to enjoy exhibitions, performances and events. Gavit is popular with couples as a date spot with its luxurious restaurants, bakery and cafe. Yevit is an all-new addition to Sebitseom Island famous for art performances and events at its media art gallery.
