ASD Public Facilities
Hong Kong

The Hong Kong Government enlisted WCWP to carry out wide-ranging improvement works to public facilities as part of several general rejuvenation term consultancy packages covering more than a billion dollars of work. Scattered around the territory, the strategy was to approach these as a series of small urban projects which together could bring outsize benefits to their surrounding communities. Working within the tight constraints of government material palettes and details, WCWP sought to infuse each project with a distinct individual character through careful use of materiality, by incorporating architectural references to local building forms and styles, and through thoughtful planning.

While many of the interventions called for sober colors and functional, no-nonsense designs, the playgrounds allowed opportunities for some innovative fun. In an effort to stimulate creative play, the Mouse Island playground, for example, was based on a nautical adventure theme, with a main ship climbing area, a lighthouse, and covered seating areas evoking the hulls and sails of small dinghies.
