Award Entry

New residential tower offers luxury and panoramic views 

39 Conduit Road is an exceptional and privileged landmark. The rare opportunity to work in the mid-levels in Hong Kong is celebrated with a novel bifurcated plan-form that captures a 240˚ arc of harbour and city views. Concentration of the floor area in the tall tower reduces bulk and increases permeability at street level. Internal planning seeks to offer the most generous experience possible to residents as they use the building. A shuttle lift conveys residents from Conduit Road to the elevated residential lift lobby.

The sequence and disposition of the arrival foyers discreetly separates the residents’ domain from the street. Above, each apartment is served by a private, naturally-lit, lift lobby. The introduction of natural light and views to the lobbies transforms the day to day experience of the building. Inside the apartments, 9.5 metre-wide living rooms capture sweeping panoramic views. Semi-duplexes and duplexes offer unusually majestic and spacious high-rise living spaces.

The podium roof is contiguous with the steep and wooded slopes of Victoria Peak behind the building. Thus in contrast to the orphaned amenity space of an isolated podium roof, the roof garden at 39 Conduit Road is a genuine extension of the landscape. Visually the soaring stone-clad shear walls of the tower are balanced with a careful rhythm of windows, spandrels and fins. In parallel with the efficient planning, the architect conceived the envelope as an original and restrained aesthetic composition of counterpoints; natural and manmade materials, human and massive scale, all presented in a rational and modern assembly.
