ARK receives the Architecture MasterPrize 2021
We are excited to announce that our project, The Iceberg on the 68 Kimberley Road, Hong Kong is being recongized as one of the honorable mention projects in 2021 Architecture MasterPrize under the category of Architectural Design - Commercial Architecture.
The Iceberg is a “Ginza” type vertical retail tower situated in the commercial district of Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. By taking inspiration from the form of an Iceberg, a ‘found object’, the design seeks to shape an iconic shopping and dining landmark destination that stands out from surrounding dated concrete buildings in the infill site. The side set back of pedestrian link, ‘cave-like’ entrance connected to the lobby and aurora-colored night lighting together accentuate the aesthetic façade, defining the three dimensionality of form. Overall, it creates a unique retail experience for customers, while at the same time responds to the building codes, enhancing the site and urban milieu.
The Iceberg also received the Asia Pacific Property Five Stars Award in 2019, Silver Award for Best Shopping & Retail Category at the A&D Awards in 2020 and being shortlisted as one of the finalists in World Architecture Festival 2021.
