ASD Museum Interventions
Hong Kong

For the past decade, WCWP has been engaged by the Hong Kong Government for a series of term contracts covering a wide range of works, including substantial A&A works and new buildings. A number of these projects have been for several of Hong Kong’s more prestigious museums and civic institutions, including the Space Museum and Science Museum. Extensive renovation and refurbishment works throughout the interior public spaces and theatres of both Museums, as well as a major re-planning and renovation of the outdoor piazzas at the Science Museum, brought the facilities in line with modern day international standards. More recent renewal projects at the Museum of Art and the Tai Po Insect House involved overhauling restrooms, lecture theatres, and display areas, as well as the extremely complex tasks of updating ventilation systems and barrier free access provisions.

In addition, several of these projects have engaged the firm’s on-going interest in the city’s heritage. At the Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb Museum, a pristine white tensile canopy was stretched over the entire tomb as a protective measure against water damage without having to touch and potentially harm the ancient structure, believed to be nearly two-thousand years old. At the Hong Kong Heritage Museum in Shatin, full refurbishment of the galleries improved identity, visitor flow, lighting, and ventilation. Incorporating a Children’s Discovery Gallery, and specific halls for New Territories Heritage and Cantonese Opera, the renovation provided the museum with a modern and properly controlled environment for displaying their collection.
