Starting from the last week of May, the revitalised Central Police Station compound will open in phases to the public as Tai Kwun - Centre for Heritage and Arts (Tai Kwun means "Big Station" in Chinese).

As conservation architects, Purcell researched the history and significance of the Central Police Station compound and identified the areas that should be retained, and the scope for change. Building on this work, we provided the advocacy in support of stakeholder consultation, and ultimately, statutory approval.  Once works began, we deployed up to 10 staff on site to ensure that our design ambitions were delivered.  The result will be a site that is fully restored and adapted to new uses for a sustainable future, which will promote understanding of Hong Kong’s past and provide exciting new arts facilities.

Commissioned by the Hong Kong Jockey club who spearheaded the revitalization project, Purcell worked in collaboration with Herzog & de Meuron who designed two new buildings and sitewide interventions and Rocco Design Architects in the executive architect role. As the single largest heritage project that Hong Kong will perhaps ever do, it has revitalised a 6-acre site and restored some 16 heritage buildings.

The Hong Kong Jockey Club, working in partnership with the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, aims to transform this prime location at the heart of central Hong Kong into a public cultural venue that everyone can enjoy. This ambitious project has sought to breathe new life into the site and to make what was once closed to the community, into a lively centre of heritage appreciation and contemporary art.

香港中區警署建築群為古蹟和藝術活化再生

從五月的最後一周開始,活化後的香港中區警署建築群將以「 大館 - 古蹟和藝術館」分階段向公眾開放 。

作為該項目的保育建築師,Purcell對建築群的歷史和價值進行了深入的研究並對不同的區域提出了保育和活化的不同要求。在此項工作的基礎上,我們更就持份者諮詢和取得法定許可上提供了支援。項目啟動後,我們有多達10為駐場員工以確保我們的設計得以實現。項目最終將該場所全面修復活化以滿足全新的功能需要——推廣對香港歷史的認知和提供激動人心的藝術設施,並在未來得以持續。

得到香港賽馬會的委任及在其領導下,Purcell與負責設計兩棟全新建築及整體規劃的赫佐格和德默隆以及執行建築師許李嚴建築師事務有限公司進行緊密的合作。作為香港有史以來最大的保育項目,中區警署建築群活化計劃活化了6英畝的場地並修復了16棟歷史建築。

香港賽馬會與香港特別行政區政府合作,目標是將這個處於香港中環中心地帶的重要地標轉型為可供大眾使用的文化場所。項目將原本對社區封閉的場地注入了全新的生命,將其打造成為了充滿活力的 古蹟及藝術館。
