HASSELL Studio – with offices in Australia, China, South East Asia and the United Kingdom – has recently unveiled The Wool Resource Centre in Hong Kong

The multi-functional space was designed to be a global hub for all things wool, allowing visitors to discover the wonders and versatility of the fibre while presenting new opportunities for Hong Kong's textile industry.

Located in Kwun Tong, the Centre includes a library, a showroom and an events space for visitors to develop and enhance their education on wool. It features six separate zones, including open-plan workspaces, a meeting room and an auditorium.

With uninterrupted views of Victoria Harbour, open space planning has been fully utilised, and a combination of black and white tones and natural timber textures creates an impactful and sophisticated space. It is hoped that the raw nature of the floor material brings resonance to the natural wool products that Woolmark promotes.
