Tropical Residence in South District
South District, Hong Kong

The massing of the purposed design arranges the permissible GFA in two equal size buildings or ‘houses’. Each house is then further subdivided into six, three storey residences.  Access to each three storey residence is at ground floor through a shared common area reception ‘route/corridor’, thereby demonstrating the singularity of each house. Each house, being made up of four terraced residences and two semi-detached  residences, is accessed from the north via internal roads.  Vehicular and pedestrian access to the site retain their current point of entry, and rise gently to the current upper site platform.

The prime nature of this site is determined by its elevation and the potential for uninterrupted south facing ocean views over the South China Sea.  To fully exploit this potential all residence in both houses have been arranged on the southern edge of the slopping site.  To facilitate this the cross section through the topography will be regularized, with a series of three stepped platforms for the lower clubhouse, the lower house with their carports and the upper clubhouse & the upper house with their carports.

This cross sectional configuration allows ease of excavation in responding to the existing profile and enables all units at all levels to enjoy uninterrupted south-southeast facing sea views.  This is further enhanced by the adoption of high performance floor to ceiling curtain wall.  The Architecture, materials and landscape aim to create a simple, minimalist and tropical resort ambiance reminiscent of a spa retreat.
