As the ‘gateway’ to Hong Kong, it is considered vital to connect the station with the surrounding urban context and make arriving or departing passengers aware that ‘I am in Hong Kong’.

The design compacted all supporting spaces more efficiently to allow for a very large void down into the departure hall below. The outside ground plane bent down to the hall and the roof structure above gestures toward the harbour.

The result is an around 40 metres high volume which focuses all attention through the south façade toward views of Hong Kong’s Central skyline and Victoria Peak beyond.
