Passing luscious tree-lined canopies, one arrives at a privileged and immensely rare development, a gated community of 19 detached houses and 48 apartments envisioned by The Wharf (Holdings) Limited, Nan Fung Group and Wheelock Properties (Hong Kong) Limited on The Peak, Hong Kong.
The prestigious development was conceived by an international creative team, and led by acknowledged masters in the specialities of concept planning, architecture, interior design, landscape and craftsmanship.
Mount Nicholson is located at 8 Mount Nicholson Road, which consists of 2 nos. residential towers with the basement carpark with utilities floor, 19 nos. residential villas and the clubhouse recreational facilities. The towers and the basement carpark are sitting at the south side of the site with the hillside at the back. The houses were arranged along the driveway along with the site profile.
In order to enhance health and well-being of building users, the applicant used low-VOC building materials for permanent interior finishes and furniture. Also, IAQ “Good Class” criteria under EPD’s IAQ Guidance Notes was compiled in residential area and clubhouse to enhance human health in indoor areas.
Electric vehicle (EV) charger is installed for each carparking space of the development to support wider adoption of EVs in Hong Kong that could achieve energy efficient, zero roadside emissions and lower overall CO2 emissions.
