ASD Gardens and Promenades
Hong Kong

As part of several contracts totaling more than a billion dollars of work for the Hong Kong Government, WCWP was charged with revitalizing and upgrading public gardens and green spaces throughout the city. The gardens typologies vary, ranging from urban parkscapes to extensive promenades along key waterfront stretches, but many of them shared a need for new, durable shading structures to temper the intense local climate.

Each park was engaged with a sensitivity to the particular existing context, ranging from providing smaller, intimate seating areas encouraging socializing in those parks frequented more by elderly patrons, to a full ampitheater for community performances in the middle one of the city’s busiest parks. The architectural styles of the various insertions were tailored to each unique environment, some choosing to play off the pre-existing vernacular style and others introducing more contemporary elements and materials.

The projects included new buildings at North District Central Park, a long-span tensile structure in Sheung Shui, a dog park for residents of Tuen Mun, and seating areas at various parks in the New Territories, among others.
