Villas CS in Hong Kong

Villas CS was a project initiated by Swire Property Limited to develop thirty fully-detached homes in Hong Kong's Cheung Sha District a forested and generally low-density area of Hong Kong Island with scenic views and abundant vegetation. The location posed many challenges for the design team, namely the site's naturally hilly terrain and number of existing trees and plants of ecological value on the property. In addition, planning conditions only allowed for a GFA build up of less than half on the property's site area, which provided opportunities for a project more focused on surrounding views of the bay, the natural lush environment, with great penetration of sunlight and access to fresh air.

This project was a collaboration with PDP East who conceptualised 4 Typical Units. James JJ Acuna, under LWK & Partners, headed the Concept Design team, who along with Designer, Michael Shyu, were focused on the the site's Master Planning and the design of Specialty Homes (1, 3, 23, 24, 28) to cater to unique areas of the site's terrain and existing trees.

 Villas CS是由太古地產有限公司發起的一項計劃,旨在發展香港長沙區三十個完全獨立的住宅。項目位於綠樹環繞,風景宜人的香港島,島上擁有香港難得一見的自然景緻與低密度空間。這個位置為設計團隊帶來了許多挑戰,如場地的自然丘陵地形,數量繁多的樹木和具有生態價值的植物等。雖然場地有著最大上蓋面積的限制,但亦因此賦予了設計師靈感。整體設計專注於如何讓房屋與自然景緻相互交融,房屋周圍的海灣景觀,自然茂盛的環境,大量滲透的陽光與新鮮空氣充滿房屋的每一個角落。

工作室與將4個典型單元概念化的PDP East共同合作設計本次項目。 LWK&Partners旗下的James JJ Acuna是概念設計團隊的負責人,他與設計師Michael Shyu一起專注於場地的總體規劃和特色住宅的設計以迎合該地區的獨特限制和自然環境。
