Facts

  • Rising 13 stories above Kennedy Road, the building commands a spectacular panoramic view of Central and the harbor.
  • This unique site inspires the genesis of the building's double-faced composition, indicative of an earth and sky relationship.
  • Within the glass facade an asymmetrical series of elements portray activities inside the building. Three elements align to build a vertical composition.
  • An observatory lantern crowns the vertical composition within the arching stainless steel roof. A depression in the facade for an executive balcony generates the horizontal counterpoint.
  • Grown from the inspirational seed of traditional Chinese garden architecture, a civic plaza and garden wall draw the surrounding landscape across the front of the building and lock the building to the site.
  • The garden wall with its integrated fountain design provides a synthetic backdrop for a cluster of natural picturesque trees.
  • While the base of the design is rooted in the traditions of the past, the building grows above into a modern addition to Hong Kong's transforming landscape.
  • Two and three storey conference rooms occupy an interstitial space created by a small interior concave glass wall and the larger convex glass facade.
