Overall Score

The project, situated in Shau Kei Wan of Eastern District, is the second Community Green Stations out of 18 venues based on different districts developed by Environmental Protection Department to implement the “reduction first” waste management strategy. The station supports recycling efforts at the community level; and hold exhibition and educational programmes to advocate the importance of recycling.  It consists of education centre, workshop, office and ancillary facilities.

Project Description

The Community Green Station, located in Hong Kong East, is a pilot project for promoting green living and collection of recyclables at the community level. We do not want the Station to be a rubbish collection point, but a positive asset to the local area. Completed in May 2015, we turned an under-utilized carpark under a flyover into a public gathering place to bridge the old and new neighborhood within the existing dense residential area.

Design Concept

The concept is to create a Street through the site to connect the surrounding communities. Greenies of the nearby Park are extended to the old district through this urban intercourse. Through the use of green wall, bamboo trellis and courtyard garden, it embodies a sense of community and a touch of oasis within the city.

The Station is divided into separate blocks along our Street that hold exhibitions and educational programmes, as well as recycling facilities that allows recyclable collections. Various sustainable initiatives are adopted here to put the green culture of “Use Less, Waste Less” into practice. We reused the modular containers as the bases of our buildings yet modified to suit the need of different functions. The flyover above contributes to the passive cooling of the venues thus reducing solar heat gain. The provision of large overhanging roof and vertical greening can shelter the interior from the sun. Natural daylight is brought into the multi-purpose room by large Low-E glazing.

The Street, together with the garden embodies variety of gathering places, creates multiple layer of space from public to private, from open space, semi-open space to enclosed area, as an interpretation of pavilions in Chinese Garden. The Station has created a magnet where public life can be nurtured and this mediates with our sense of belonging with our permanent cultural value.
