Urban Regeneration

Location: Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong

Topic: Urban Regeneration

Year of Study: 3


Sai Ying Pun is one of the oldest districts in Hong Kong. With years of gentrification processes, the district’s character and identity is gradually fading. The goal of the design is to revitalize the urban area. To bring back the sense of neighborhood down to the street level with minor interventions through paving design, footpath widening, addition of seating areas, enhancing shop frontages, and also flourishing the area by adding street trees. With that aim, the design took the idea of a “shared space design”,  making the district more pedestrian and cycling friendly.
