Culture takes centre stage in Hong Kong

Stretching across 40ha of reclaimed land, the West Kowloon Cultural District is one of the largest cultural projects in the world, blending art, education and open space.

Designed to attract major international exhibitions and trade events, it will boast 17 performing arts venues, a museum, an exhibition centre, retail and dining, hotels, offices and homes, plus a major waterside park.

We have had a leading role on the HK$21.6bn development, providing urban, environmental and sustainability planning and infrastructure design, as well as developing a financial model for the district, and setting out the spatial and functional requirements for all of the new venues.

Our team has worked closely with West Kowloon Cultural District Authority and architect Foster & Partners to harmonise the functional requirements of the venues with the masterplan.

We have assisted stakeholder consultations, enabling the West Kowloon community and wider public to express their ambitions and expectations for the area. We also advised on ventilation and air quality, noise, drainage, open space, building height and sight lines, ensuring the development meets Hong Kong’s rigorous town planning, environmental and other statutory requirements.
