Aedas designs hotel for one of the most densely populated districts on earth

Aedas has completed a hotel building in hong kong, which features a ‘pixelated’ façade and a vast green wall. the tower is located in mongkok, a neighborhood considered to be one of the most densely populated districts on earth, with a population density of 130,000 people per square kilometer.

Aedas has conceived the beacon’s irregular protrusions as a contemporary interpretation of the illegal iron balconies — used to maximize views and floor space — that were once familiar to the region. here, the irregular protrusions create unobstructed views for each unit. meanwhile, a green wall on the podium façade is designed to further connect the building with the historical cityscape and offer more greenery at the pedestrian level.

the project was recently crowned the best tall building project at LEAF awards 2018, and highly commended for best sustainable project at blueprint awards 2018 in europe.
