Award Entry

New housing on Hong Kong's Beas River from Ronald Lu & Partners 

Valais is a luxury low-rise residential development sitting at the picturesque Beas River, Sheung Shui, Hong Kong. It comprises 330 houses and 2 clubhouses with a site area of approximately 158,700 sq m. These contemporary two-storey and three-storey detached and semi-detached villas range from 240 sq m to 840 sq m. To dissolve the boundary between the site and the environment, visual connections with the mountains and the river are established by integrating lush landscapes to the development.

The 2,815-sq-m Valais Clubhouse provides recreational facilities to the residents. To achieve a unifying setting with the landscape in this sub-tropical climate, we put the architecture in a bold yet embracing form, defined by clean lines and sensual materials. In the courtyard is a 50-metre-long outdoor pool.

The pool connects sequential views of indoor and outdoor spaces that filled with greenery, flora, grass, textures, lights and reflections. Various overhanging shading features are designed to create shaded pockets of outdoor spaces. The articulated vertical shading screens at both the atrium and the indoor pool also create a meaningful dialogue between landscape and interiors, a space that changes with time.
