The Ecological Cell
This site provides the last opportunity to give to Hong Kong a great urban park equivalent to those found in major cities of the world like Central Park in New York or Hyde Park in London.
With a new landscaped site-coverage of over 94%, this will be the largest urban park in Hong Kong, framing the waterfront in a lush green dynamic setting. Our masterplan focuses on the park as an “ecological cell” that links key green spaces in Hong Kong Island , as a “necklace” that links together waterfront activities, commercial, retail, cultural and recreational community spaces in one single unique development.
This “ecological cell” is designed as a “green jacket” over the retail, entertainment, cultural and other facilities hat are placed on top, blow, or sandwiched between the green jacket. “Ecocells” are introduced to bring natural light, natural ventilation and pedestrians from the park down to the subterranean parking.
This is an ecological design solution that seeks to provide an environmentally sustainable urban ecosystem as a major park within the intensive city of Hong Kong, while fulfilling the arts, cultural and recreational programmes of the community.
