The Light House Cultural Center by Avoid Obvious Architects

Home > Winners > #67363


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Light House

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Cultural Center

INSPIRATION:
The Light House collects places like event space for art and music, coworking office for entrepreneurs and art studios for movie makers. The abundance of restaurants with the lack of proper cultural spaces makes our curation of programs a great addition. The project helps to create better quality of life for existing residents while attracting families of all ages who are interested in vibrant lifestyle in a quiet area.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Light House is a collection of cultural activities to make Star Street Precinct into a hub to exchange ideas for the next 2 decades. It enlightens people in an intimate way using human centric design. The Light House adds to the story about the past, present and future of Star Street, while making it into a village for the global minds. It brings light to bodies and minds.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Both buildings have orthogonal design which makes modular construction possible. Not only it provides expedited service, it also minimizes construction impact to the surrounding. Taken all these features into account, this project is feasible with limited budget.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project concept started in November 2017

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Reusing existing buildings is the most sustainable practice in terms of lowering carbon footprint. On the outside, we want to add more greenery to break out spaces. They will be accessible to the public while helping to allow the ambient temperature. It is a much-needed amenity for the area. On the inside, new sustainable features such as high performance windows, energy efficient air conditioner and low flow fixture will be added to all the buildings not only to meet environmental goals but to elevate the living standard for all families.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Total Floor Area is 17112m2

TAGS:
Cultural Center, Urban, Retrofit, Reuse

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The Light House will use the network of developers to expand their cultural influence. Having joint events with airline, clothing, food and beverage and Academy for Performing Arts, the projects wants the whole neighborhood not only to become a place all visitors talk about but also a place Hong Kong people admire.

CHALLENGE:
The Light House learns from the local context. The montage of building styles ranging from 1950 Tenement house to 1980 Star Studios to 2004 Three Pacific Place is arguably the essence of Star Street Precinct. Along with the mix of global residents already inside the area, our proposal is about celebrating this diversity of people and places. The Light House will respect buildings on site but turns Wing Fung Street into an evolving artwork. We aim to reuse all the existing buildings while adding new volumes on top in modern style to create a montage of cultural experiences.
