Details :

The project transforms an environmentally malignant infrastructural construction into a "playful" green deck park to benefit local neighborhoods in Kwun Tong.  Adopting natural lighting inside the pumping station by incorporating big skylights not only saves electricity consumption but also creates an appealing architectural design for the park. The landscape and ecology design effectively adopts around 60 plant species to promote biodiversity. On the deck, there are over 60 "playful" playground and educational facilities, including those that fulfil the needs of different ages and physical abilities. The building has fulfilled its mission of promoting the importance of sewage treatment, water conservation, and sustainability.


The project won a Grand Award (NEW BUILDINGS CATEGORY: Completed Projects- Institutional) in Green Building Award 2023.
