Data Center
Hong Kong

The Data Center was proposed to provide two fully self-contained TIA-942 Tier 3+ data centers within one building, with built-in 2N+1 redundancy to all manners of data handling and essential services. Modular design of the building allowed for efficient spatial planning within a compact massing that was also configured to permit easy future expansion. Being in a built-up area, the building massing and envelope attempted to blend in with surrounding buildings through common analogies, form and colors, while respecting the sight lines of others. To counter the enormous amount of heat that data centers usually and incessantly generate, the building envelope adopted various environmentally-responsive strategies from green roof, green wall, to double-skin facade design.
