LOOKING FORWARD TO 2022
As we celebrate the Lunar New Year, Inhabit would like to thank you, our valued industry colleagues and friends, for your continued support. We invite you to join us in celebrating a new and exciting year ahead full of potential.
In 2021 our team in Hong Kong had a busy and productive year. We completed a range of interesting and challenging projects including providing façade consulting and lighting design for the luxury, five-star hotel, The Hari Hong Kong, façade consulting for The Vantage high-rise development in Ma Tau Wai Road and for the refurbishment of the podium of Alexandra House. We also joined the Data Technology Hub project at the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park (HKSTP) and provided façade consulting on commercial redevelopment at 39 Kings Road in Tin Hau. For more information on the projects Inhabit has been working on, please visit our website using the link below.
The team’s creativity and technical ability are stronger than ever, and we have some exciting projects we will be working on in 2022. These include seeing The Londoner casino resort in Macau’s Cotai Strip coming to completion, providing façade and access and maintenance consulting services to the redevelopment of The Mariners’ Club at 11 Middle Road, and our continued work with Hong Kong International Airport on their development of the three-runway system with an expanded Terminal 2 and third runway concourse.
We look forward to continuing to provide our clients with the high level of service to help them realise their ambitions. I wish you all a prosperous, harmonious and auspicious New Year of the Tiger 2022.

HARD WORK PAYS OFF FOR HONG KONG TEAM
The Hong Kong Team has had an exciting 2021, during which we have taken on challenging projects of all sizes and shapes – from a very sculptural Louis Vuitton pop-up store/ installation at the Shanghai Hongqiao Airport, to The Hendersen – a novel addition to Hong Kong’s already impressive skyline; and from a chic retail extension to the City of Dreams, a mega-casino in Macau, to the opulent, multi-million dollar homes with sweeping views over the South China Sea in Ap Lei Chau.
As a member of the computational and parametric design community within Inhabit, I am also pleased to say that we have continued to integrate computational design into our day-to-day façade consultancy practice.
Over the past year one of our colleagues, Ho-sung Kim, developed a code that uses a proprietary physics simulator in the rationalisation of global geometry and panelisation for the curvilinear roofs of two passenger terminals at the Dhoho Airport in Indonesia. This new development has been documented as an academic paper submitted and presented by our team at the Advanced Building Skins Conference 2021at Bern, Switzerland.
The years of hard work and ingenuity that our team has invested in the extension of Studio City – a large-scale resort in Macau – is also getting paid off. The two hotel towers topped out earlier this year, and its podium is fast getting into shape. The development is expected to be open for business in the coming year.
The Hong Kong team embraces 2022 with optimism as well as a number of exciting projects in the works – along with the Shenzhen team, we are working on a new hotel and convention centre developed by a Chinese tech giant. Four high-end residential projects, planned and developed with much love and care by a boutique developer based in Hong Kong are also expected to reach milestone stages this year.
