Kwai Shing Estate Phase 7
Kwai Chung, Hong Kong

Designed for the Hong Kong Housing Authority, this $1.2 billion composite development includes 14-storeys of affordable-housing units, offering a range of apartment sizes for low-income families. The lower 7-storeys of the building house elderly care units and a community center with associated offices. Careful consideration of residents’ limited mobility and sight informed many of the design decisions, as did the extensive managed-care service requirements. To offer views away from the neighboring housing estate high-rises and towards nearby greenery and country parks, WCWP developed a linear U-shaped plan, while a system of fin walls was implemented to shield the apartments against traffic noise from the adjacent highway. Prefabricated construction methods were adopted for the facades to keep costs down and maintain high quality standards.
