HONG KONG | Composite Building | 105m | 343ft | 29 fl | Pro

International architecture firm Aedas has created an apartment building to reinterpret Hong Kong's traditional architecture. Located in the Mongkok District, which has a population density of 130,000 people per square kilometer (333,000 people per square mile), Composite Building features a lush living wall to enhance quality of life.

The architects decided to place greenery at the pedestrian level with a green wall that protrudes from the fašade of the podium. Historic Hong Kong structures, which often included illegal balconies and improvised gardens, are reinterpreted in this building by "using irregular protrusions to create unobstructed views for each apartment," according to the project description.

Construction on the project recently commenced.

It will be really interesting to see how this will turn out and how it will blend in with the other buildings around it.

A great, but not obnoxious use of a green wall.
