Area: 8,000 m²
Client: RISE WIN Corporation
Date: Scheduled Completion 2016
Located in the world’s densest district (Mongkok, Kowloon), this highrise residential tower is an exemplary model of hyper-urban living. Using its surrounding context of a dense urban street and parkette as inspiration, the design of the tower becomes a poetic interplay between 2 different materials: the green tile (park) and silver grey glass (city). Two different types of residential micro-units are provided, both under 250ft² (23m²). These units are equipped with flexible furniture and partitions in order to maximize possible modes of inhabitation. As part of the larger urban
revitalization of Mongkok, the design aims to provide a sense of sophistication and tactility to a once derelict part of the city.
