133 Wai Yip Street in Hong Kong, China by MVRDV

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

Article source: MVRDV

MVRDV have opened the 133 Wai Yip Street in Hong Kong. An office transformation, with retail and restaurants, which strips an old industrial building down to its bare bones and uses only glass with stainless steel infill to build up the interior spaces. The 18.000m2  project, located on the Kwun Tong waterfront is part of a larger urban development scheme which aims to turn the post-industrial district of East Kowloon into Hong Kong’s new central business district (named CBD2). An entirely see-through office stands as an example to the goals of the project to give ultimate transparency within the workplace. The project was commissioned in 2013 by project developer GAW Capital and now stands as one of the flagship projects for the new business development, becoming the bridge between the neighbourhood’s industrial roots and it’s metropolitan future.

Friday, May 27th, 2016

Article source: Rocker-Lange Architects

The H | Residence project is located in an up and coming neighborhood on Hong Kong Island.  Though very much shaped by high-rise buildings of the last three decades, the area has still a decent amount of old walk up buildings, revealing the richness of the city’s urban history. The neighborhoods texture consists of many layers of numerous patterns, colors and materials. The result is a vibrant and intense atmosphere, lively and contrasting, yet at times busy and overwhelming.

Sheung Wan IBIS Hotel in Hong Kong by AGC Design Ltd.

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

Article source: AGC Design Ltd.

Ibis Hong Kong Central & Sheung Wan Hotel, a catchy, colourful icon strategically located in the bustling Sheung Wan, is only within minutes away from many of the transportation networks as well as Hong Kong Central’s business and shopping hub.  The Hotel, housed with 550 modern, boldly simplistic guestrooms, a restaurant and a bar, boasts one of the first Asian flagships to showcase a brand new vibrant style, bringing in comfort, well-being and caring service.

The hotel exterior and outlook is eye-catching which stands out in Sheung Wan area where Hong Kong heritage prevails.  The hotel exterior is set to be a new landmark and icon in the Sheung Wan district, an interesting streetscape to blend in both modernity and heritage of Hong Kong whilst enlivening Sheung Wan as an up-and-coming tourist area.

Tracing back the story in the 1920s Sheung Wan, the façade design reflects the historical streetscape of Hong Kong: the rectangular tenement houses in repetitive order, collage of huge advertising signage in multi-colours, forming a uniform but dynamic streetscape, A City of Mosaic.

The hotel exterior is set to be a new landmark and icon in the Sheung Wan district, an interesting streetscape to blend in both modernity and heritage of Hong Kong whilst enlivening Sheung Wan as an up-and-coming tourist area. It fully echoes with the Hotel being featured as one of Asian ibis flagships in terms of its hotel scale and benchmark of the hotel branding.

The Forum in Hong Kong, China by Aedas

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

Article source: Aedas

The Forum redevelopment is a holistic design, integrating a new office building, sculpture park and events plaza and there by revitalising the entire Exchange Square development. The compact and exquisitely detailed new building opens up the site visually and physically, creating a significant public space designed as a series of stone platforms linked with water features and planting. The design by Keith Griffiths is inspired by precious gems. The perfect cube of the building is dramatically tilted to create a grand entrance from the plaza. The geometry of the tilted plane is resolved into the elegant diamond cut façade of the building. As a Grade-A office in the heart of the Central district, the column-free office interior with its 2.9m of floor-to-ceiling space evokes a tailor-made environment with ample natural daylight from all elevations.
