As a part of Hong Kong’s Tamar development project, the headquarters is a complex consisting of the Central Government Complex (CGC) and the Legislative Council (LegCo) Complex.
Competed in 2011, the complex takes on a visual metaphor of “Door always open” which is deliberately expressed by the resemblance of an open-door frame of the CGC office blocks.
With a vision of a cleaner future, such symbolic form is in fact functional. Dispositioned blocks welcome prevailing wind into the inner city while allowing illumination from the south. Meanwhile, stepped levels of blocks encourage redistribution of air.
Another remarkable feature is the landscaped green lawn that cuts through the complex and extends to the harbourfront, which creates a desirable multi-functional public space.
