A&A Concept Design: Facade
Savills (Hong Kong) Limited
Maxwell Industrial Building, Kwun Tong, Hong Kong
Kwun Tong is a district that contains perhaps one of the highest density of commercial buildings in the entire city. Walking through this miniature cement jungle, one might sometimes find the overpowering monochromic spatial profile in the district a bit suffocating.
By assigning an external green podium deck area in every 7 to 8 storeys, our design concept of Maxwell Industrial Building opens up a communal architectural oasis for office workers to catch a breath of fresh air amidst the stressful city lifestyle. The interlocking structural facade somewhat creates an illusive twin-tower perspective from various distant angles, introducing a brand new visual challenge to the plain neighbourhood.
