Hong Kong-based practice BARRIE HO Architecture Interiors has recently designed the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) Telebet Centre
Located in Sha Tin, Hong Kong, the HKJC Telebet Centre at Communication & Technology Centre, Sha Tin Racecourse is an attempt to redefine the new generation of hi-tech Telebet centres and Telebet booths for thousands of staff, and to serve their ever-increasing demands.
The new premises is situated over three storeys, each occupying around 55,000 sq-f and including supervisor counters, a briefing room, leisure corners and ancillary administrative staff rooms.
In order to meet the new demand of the staff working in the centre every day, the new Facial Recognition Hall has incorporated a variety of contemporary elements to foster a more high-tech environment. Ceiling systems, recognition machines and enquiry cubes have been employed to create a thoroughly modern interior befitting to the technology it surrounds.
The new Telebet Arena occupies two full floors with over 104,978 sq-f of working space, while the new generation of Telebet booths engage hexagonal groupings to form dumbbell shapes, encouraging heightened communication between colleagues
Helping to create a healthier and more user-friendly working environment for staff attending different shifts, the Telebet Centre is well-equipped with individual amenities exclusively for staff, which include staff pantries, leisure corners and user-friendly facilities for wheelchair users.
