Purcell worked on restoration element of delayed conversion of former police station into arts complex
A former police station in Hong Kong has finally opened its doors to the public as a £360m arts, leisure and retail centre featuring new buildings designed by Herzog & de Meuron four years later than planned.
The former Central Police Station, a six-acre complex of buildings – the oldest of which was completed in 1864 – has been transformed into the Twai Kwun Centre for Heritage and Art.
Herzog & de Meuron designed two new buildings for the scheme, while UK-based Purcell oversaw architectural services and Rocco Design Architects managed the on-site executive role.
