Hong Kong’s historic Blue House wins Unesco’s highest heritage conservation award
Judges impressed by the ‘truly inclusive approach to urban conservation’ at the cluster of 20th century shophouse blocks, once threatened with demolition
November 1, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

A cluster of historic tenement buildings revamped into a modern residential and community complex in Hong Kong has won a prestigious international award for heritage conservation.

The Blue House cluster – three 20th century shophouse blocks in Wan Chai – was given the Award of Excellence, the highest level in four categories, in this year’s Unesco Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation.

It is the first time Hong Kong has received the highest level of achievement from Unesco, but 17 other projects in the city have also been given honourable mentions or merit prizes since the awards began in 2000.

Sixteen projects from six countries in Asia were selected as winners from 43 submissions.
