Through its strong architectural expression, the Emperor Group’s Upton residential development is defined within the Hong Kong skyline with an impressive outlook over Victoria Harbour.
The parabolic transitions between the vertical and horizontal plains result in a smooth blend of light and shade. The balconies become a sculptured façade feature that softens the architectural expression while defining the building’s identity.
Inhabit was engaged to carry out elevation design, façade consultancy and external lighting consultancy.
With the completion of the Upton residential development, Inhabit was invited to contribute to a short film piece discussing the design concept and materiality of the building. Inhabit Director, Hugh Brennand of the Hong Kong office, speaks about the flowing ribbon forms which are fabricated from GRC (Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete) and the benefits this material offers.
