Archiplus International has completed yoo Residence in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

The project was created with the intention to be a boutique residence for young professionals and investors, thanks in large part to its location just off the edge of the tightly knitted urban fabric of Causeway Bay. Historically, the site was part of a group of small lots that were subdivided from larger land parcels, and the setting offers both public and private urban conditions.

Characteristics of the private streets that surround the building have inspired the design, and small plazas have been created at street level to encourage interaction with the local community. The building’s main entrance is intentionally set to the side to create privacy for residents.

The architectural style of the external façade is intended to form a balance between both cosmopolitan and classical aesthetics, and stepped terraces have been created on the podium to further cement the building’s interactive relationship with the neighbourhood.

With 144 units, facilities include an outdoor swimming pool, a function space, a gym, a sauna and a roof garden.
