Llewelyn Davies Yeang, in association with T. R. Hamzah & Yeang Sdn. Bhd. (Kuala Lumpur) and Andrew Lee King Fun Associates (Hong Kong) have been commissioned by the University of Hong Kong to design the Human Research Institute (HRI) (10 storeys above ground and 3 storeys below), for genome research and for complimentary and alternative medicine at the Li Shu Fan Site at the University of Hong Kong campus. Phase One is a 16,000 sq.m. new building that will house laboratories, offices and common areas. The project is planned for expansion, and future phases will be developed based on funding availability. The project will be an exemplar green design for research and teaching facilities, with its built form integrated with the ecosystem of the locality. It will make extensive use of a planting-system that connects the existent green park adjoining the site by means of a series of continuous planter-strips on the facade of the building that leads upwards to a vegetated roof-garden. This is combined with passive low energy techniques that will reduce the building's energy consumption while improving the quality of the learning and research environment. The built form is shaped around the existing trees on the site as a signature design and landmark building that will enhance the University's campus environment and its international stature.
