Sheung Wan | Hong Kong Residential 2.800 sqm Private Commission Schematic Design
Design a tower in one of the narrowest sites in the city of Hong Kong is a real challenge. The idea was to create a very thin tower that was able to enclose offices and service apartments maximising the GFA of the site following Hong Kong Regulations.
The curtain wall of the facade was designed in order to minimise the light absorption by the glass during the hot months to minimise the energy consumption. Terraces in several stories allows to have open and green space at high levels with views of the surroundings of Hong Kong.
