Led by Danny Ng, Perspective‘s 40 Under 40 2014 winner in Interiors, 4N design architects has composed 1563 at the East, a music venue in Wan Chai which supports local Hong Kong musicians 

Located inside the Hopewell Centre in on Queen’s Road East, Hong Kong, 1563 at the East is  dining and live performance venue, specifically for local Hong Kong music in Cantonese. Inspired by Wan Chai’s site context , 4N conceived a scheme to bring the culture of the orient and the west together.

In the grand entrance area, a contemporary stone wall with a faceted ceiling dome has been mirrored with a Chinese culture-inspired timber lattice, harking back to the history of Hong Kong, where Chinese culture has been influenced by its long years as a British colony.

Flanking the entrance is a large champagne bar on one side and a ticketing counter on the other; leading on to a large hall where dining tables and chairs are arranged around the stage. Here too can be found an array of VIP rooms that allow bookings for private functions. This is also where the stage control room and the artist changing room is located.

In area adjacent to the bar, diagonally-cut acoustic panels form a faceted, cage-like ceiling feature which disguises services such as the air-conditioning outlet and lighting strips.. The overall colour scheme features an earth tone; materials include grey marble, grey granite, earth-toned stone tiles, timber, grey-toned acoustic foam, a touch of red and selective use of bronze metal.

1583 at the East also houses a fully-equipped Asian kitchen capable of handing orders for 200 diners; as well as an alfresco dining and event space.
