HONG KONG | 87-89 Jervois Street | 34 fl | Com

Project Details

The site for this 34-story boutique hotel is a wonderful corner site in Hong Kong's central area with a public park along its easterly frontage. Hong Kong is a vertical city of skyscrapers very similar in nature to New York and is equally difficult to find a good foreground site.

The architectural response to this site has been to provide a glass tower that rises up from a 3-story base. The glass tower has a center articulation that expresses the two hotel suites per floor and then the architectural form stops at the top to express the last 5 floors of one hotel suite per floor.

The architectural design has been concerned with a desire to create a lightness in the articulation of the class curtain wall. This lightness is achieved by having the planes at the top and the bottom cantilevered out from the main structure. Additional lightness is achieved by having the planes of glass cantilever out from the main structure at the corners of the tower.

The hotel suites have been designed to open southerly to the panoramic views as well as to let the sunlight into the suites. The suites have clearly defined spaces for living, sleeping and will have all the amenities of a 5-star hotel. Amenities such as electronically operated window blind systems and private elevator lobbies for each hotel suite are incorporated for each of the hotel suites.

The render looks good, but I'll bet that it turns out like a regular tower.

Very good. Is it physically attached to the buildings behind or just very close to them?

Look like one side attaches to its neighbour slightly.

Stopped by lately for a closer look - base is attached but above the podium, there is a very small gap from the next building.

I like the building, but construction in HK just looks like it's complicated with so many buildings in close proximity to one another.

Great, Hong Kong gets another too-narrow skyscraper with floorplates smaller than those of the Singer Building.

Well, many of the plots in the older areas are very narrow, hence pencil towers pop up everywhere!
