The scheme consists of an academic block situated on the site’s promontory, several accommodation groupings, and an amenity zone distributed over a series of inter-connected platforms cascading to the sea. An axial circulation spine originating at the entrance plaza intersects a set of secondary paths that conjoin 46 distinct programmatic elements. A “single roof” fosters the cross-pollination of departments, while human scale emerges through the articulation of volumes and thresholds.
Phases 1 & 2 were completed in association with PTP Ltd. Simon Kwan & Associates Ltd. contributed comprehensive architectural services for the entire project; PTP Ltd. contributed facilities planning services for the academic block.
