The Lee Shau Kee Peace Education Center in Li Po Chun United World College of Hong Kong was commended with two Honour Awards for ‘Interiors’ and ‘Sustainability’ by the American Institute of Architects Hong Kong Chapter.

The project demonstrates an advancement of school design focusing on the wellness of the students by its connection to nature. The merit of the design is through the understanding of the nature of threshold and manipulation of building envelope through the modest use of hardware and operational systems. The result is a design which domesticated the ground floor and creates a dialogue between the interior and nature.AIA Hong Kong, Jury 2021
This project was an integration of architecture, interior space and landscape, with sustainability at the forefront achieving both Fitwel and LEED certifications. Through a dedicated collaborative effort, we provided a versatile learning environment where classes, workshops, film screenings, music nights and group study sessions can be held.
A highlight of the project is the ‘learning street’, with a feature wall that integrates indoor and outdoor areas and leads to an extended social space. Encouraging innovative and multipurpose learning, we implemented a makerspace for future 3D classes supporting S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) learning.
