Project Hong Kong University Auditorium
Brief New Auditorium and Cultural Hub for Hong Kong University Campus
Location Hong Kong
The London and Hong Kong studios of Oval Partnership worked closely together on the design of this radical intervention into the heart of the Hong Kong University campus to create a brand-new 400-seat professional-standard performance venue, new entertainment and exhibition suites, a new bar and greatly improved social and cultural facilities for students. The design builds on the success of the existing Chong Yuet Ming Amenities Centre that it partially replaces by tying together a disparate mix of faculty buildings, canteens, shops and student union facilities to create a vibrant cultural hub around the new venue.

The facilities are designed to be as permeable as possible to maximize the benefit to students during the course of the teaching day, whilst in performance mode they will provide state-of-the-art technology for both in-house and visiting performers. The existing Theatre 303 will also be upgraded as part of the redevelopment.
