Wan Chai Sports Federation
@ Moreton Terrace, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
In a high density city like Hong Kong, acquiring space often means a high cost.
Leftover spaces under flyovers are one of the viable options for extra spaces. Often deemed inhospitable, the Moreton Terrace flyover in Causeway Bay is one exception that carves out architectural spaces for different purposes.
Following the great success of the Utilization of Leftover Spaces underneath Flyover for the Headquarter of Hong Kong Federation of Women, the Wan Chai Sports Federation is another attempt to fully explore the space beneath the Flyover in Moreton Terrace, Causeway Bay.
The Federation is under the major Flyover in Moreton Terrace next to Central Library connecting Tai Hang and Northern Causeway Bay. The Split-Levels suggest an even higher efficiency within a tight site. The Rectangular Architectural Form purposely surrounded by a Fenced Garden for gatherings whilst the Federation allows a Sports’ Hall with Upper Gallery and a Multi-function Hall, Ancillary Back-up Offices, Changing Rooms and Resources Centre.
In order to Re-Create an iconic architecture below a Flyover, the underneath of the Flyover will be lighted up whilst the architecture is coloured by Contrasting “Orange” and “Dark Grey”.
