ARCHITECTURE

One HarbourGate, Hong Kong

This commercial development consists of two 14-storey office buildings and two retail villas with total gross floor area of about 55,000 sq. m. The project includes schematic design, section 16 applications, design development and up to construction.

The design is inspired by the distinctive silhouette of traditional junks. The facade cuts a bias and creates dynamic silhouettes, depicting a junk sailing in the wind and dynamically moving in the harbour. Vertical glass fins are introduced to catch light and create a bright and glistening surface. Environmentally, building blocks are orientated as “south facing” with architectural fins to reduce solar heat gain. Generous landscape ventilation corridors are also introduced to enhance the passive air ventilation for all seasons. Socially, the landscape design creates a series of attractive landscape spaces serving as a primary connecting node between the city grid and the waterfront, which bring the public to the waterfront.

One HarbourGate has been certified with BEAM Gold rating (provisional) and targets for attaining LEED Gold rating by the U.S. Green Building Council.
