Snøhetta has revealed its first built project in Hong Kong, Airside, a 176,000 square meters mixed-use building. Located in the center of the former Kai Tak airport, the project commissioned by Nan Fung Group comprises a 200-meter tower merged seamlessly with its base. The Snøhetta-designed mixed-use building Airside takes advantage of its site and its surroundings, providing views over the Victoria Harbour and Kai Tak River. Situated at a unique and rapidly transforming location in central Hong Kong, the building, imagined as a main gateway to the development, sits on top of the new Kai Tak metro station, in close proximity to other public transport interchanges. Designed as an access door, the project offers visitors admissions “to ample public spaces through a series of exterior plazas and rooftop garden, suited for urban farming, restaurants, events, and recreation”.
