Mount Davis Youth Hostel Hospitality by Karr Yip and Wilson Lee

Home > Winners > #28174


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Mount Davis Youth Hostel

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Hospitality

INSPIRATION:
Mount Davis Youth Hostel – Living with Our Military History The hostel is sitting at the middle of a unique cultural landscape surrounded by ruins of batteries and barracks, the Mount Davis, which played an important role in the Hong Kong military history since 1911. Before the refurbishment, it was a 30-year-old small building cluster and was not very popular in view of the inconvenience.Given such a strong site character, we want to rebrand this youth hostel to offer a whole new way for travelers to experience Hong Kong.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Mount Davis Youth Hostel – Living with Our Military History Sitting at the middle of battery and barrack ruins built in 1911, our design encapsulates the essence of Mount Davis, magnifies them and blends into the hostel facilities. All the new elements capture the form of explosion: a symbol of energy, movement and re-creation. This sense of dynamics matches perfectly the need to create a place for youngsters. Through this project, we redefine the function of youth hostel beyond providing accommodation; it also opens up a new opportunity to combine hostel services and cultural tourism for travelers to explore the history of Hong Kong Island West.
