Hong Kong-based design firm 4N design architects has completed a green lobby in Sha Tin, Hong Kong
Working alongside a retailer of food products in Hong Kong, HK JEBN Group, 4N conceived the eco-friendly project to bring an element on nature into the building. The design was inspired by the concept of ‘In search of natural beauty’.
The area consists of a semi-outdoor garden space and an indoor lobby/concierge space. The garden includes timber flooring, lawn and vertical plantings, and all greenery is supported by an automated irrigation system and advanced-level drainage system.
One major design feature of the lobby is a circular room that serves as both a museum wall and a locker room for 300 people. Rainbow-inspired colours were incorporated into the museum wall where marketing messages are placed in coloured baskets.
