The Tung Fat Building In Hong Kong x K.P.D.O. – Before & After

2 years ago by in Architecture, Art & Design

Australian design firm K.P.D.O. “Kerry Phelan Design Office” completed the transformation of a run-down building from the 1960s in Hong Kong, into the Tung Fat Building, which is now home to updated conte

The architect’s description

K.P.D.O is proud to be at the forefront of Hong Kong’s growing interest in its own architectural heritage as it launches the Tung Fat Building in Kennedy Town. Originally a low-rise tong lau built in the 1960s, the Tung Fat Building is located on Kennedy Town’s waterfront in the Western District of Hong Kong Island.

.

K.P.D.O. was tasked with breathing new life into the building by reimagining the property as eight luxury apartments and restoring its facade. Built in the attractive art-deco style of the 1960s, the Tung Fat Building’s four spacious floors boast large windows and tall ceilings as well as sweeping vistas of Hong Kong Harbour across to Stonecutters Bay.

The design firm remained as true as possible to the original aesthetics of the building, working to preserve such elements as the cast terrazzo handrail and the mouldings. The faded exterior was remodelled and restored to a gleaming black and white – allowing the building to keep its retro-chic appearance.
