The project is the redevelopment of the Luk Hoi Tong Building which is well-known as a by-gone
cinema landmark in Central for fifty years. The new development will be a complex building of
contemporary standards with new office spaces, retail shops and restaurants.
Situated at a prominent corner and abutting the pedestrianised Theatre Lane, the design focuses
on a highly dramatized folding façade system as the main feature on the elongated side of the
building that wraps the podium and the tower portion in a formal continuum. The result is a
dynamic and engaging interface with public movement along Theatre Lane, as well as a subtle
and conceptualized reference to the theatrical history of the site.
