THR350 clinches International Design and Architecture Award

THR350 in Hong Kong was named winner of the Residential £15 Million Plus category at International Design and Architecture Award 2014.

THR350 is a nine-storey private residence designed by Ken Wai, Global Board Director, Aedas. Located at a hillside on the Hong Kong Island, its design was inspired by an early image of the city which shows a waterfall pouring down from a cliff and visually dividing the rock surface into two portions. This visual became the key driver of the design concept which uses a 1.5-metre grid to govern the planning of the building. This is rigidly followed through on the façade to resemble the sturdy rock face; but punctuated by a sculptural staircase that reflects the freeform of water and was further reinterpreted as three stacking ice cubes. The collision of forms not only links the building to the historic setting of Hong Kong but also the current context of the site, making it uniquely appropriate.
