Delivering an urban landmark for Hong Kong and connectivity with mainland China.
The West Kowloon Terminus is an iconic high speed railway hub that connects Hong Kong with mainland China and provides mixed-use development opportunities for the adjacent areas’ residents and businesses.
Façade and BMU solutions for irregular but functional structure
The irregular and shell-shaped and complex geometries making up the overall form of the building sit atop a railway hub 30 metres underground, and must fulfil high energy and water conservation standards while enabling sufficient lighting and water usage.
Connectivity with mainland China
The West Kowloon Terminus is a US $10 billion public infrastructure investment by Hong Kong. As the city’s only high speed railway hub, transports 80,100 passengers daily, integrating Hong Kong’s economic activities with other major Chinese cities such as Guangzhou and Shenzhen in the Greater Bay Area.
