Hong Kong Government

The Hong Kong Government called for concept designs to upgrade a multi-purpose stadium in the New Territories, approximately 30km north of Hong Kong. Jackson Architecture, working in association with Hong Kong based architects Leigh & Orange, prepared the winning design.

The Stadium sits on a new architectural hill, created by a series of sweeping landscape terraces and green walls that reach out to the gentle slopes of the park. The new hill carefully hides the large area required for operation vehicles, coaches, VIP drop off, change rooms and a myriad of service requirements.

The relatively constrained site holds up to 7,000 spectators at a C - Value of C 75.
