Nine Story Modern Art

Located at a hillside on the Hong Kong Island, this nine-story private residence is set within an urban yet relatively low density area. The functional design provides flexibility for the owner to convert the building into apartments in the future, ensuring extended life and potential for adaptive reuse. The building expresses the collision between the formal aspects of family and the freedom of art form on the facade and staircase.








“ I dream of a new age of curiosity. We have the technical means for it; the desire is there; the things to be known are infinite; the people who can employ themselves at this task exist. Why do we suffer? From too little: from channels that are too narrow, skimpy, quasi-monopolistic, insufficient. There is no point in adopting a quasi- protectionist attitude, to prevent 'bad' information from invading and suffocating the 'good'. Rather, we must simply multiply the paths and the possibilities of comings and goings."

Philosopher Michel Foucault
