HKIA 2011 Annual Awards
Selected Project-SCape

Sitting on a sloping site at Cape Road in Chung Hom Kok, SCape comprises of 8 individual houses. Each house is carefully positioned on this steep, triangular site so that an extensive view towards St. Stephen’s Bay can be fully enjoyed, yet able to retain its individuality and exclusivity.

This project aims to exemplify the idea of smooth transition between interior, architecture, landscape and the spectacular scenery. Each house is uniquely articulated to respond to its surrounding. The 3-storey mass is shifted and setbacks are being sculpted to break down the vertical extruded volume.

Materials are composed asymmetrically to create a contemporary and informal setting that reaches a balanced connection with the exterior. Decks, patios and balconies also offers a smooth flow from the interior to the landscaped garden and swimming pool on the ground floor which further extends to the sea and sky beyond.
