18 Sep 2017
Organised by St. James Settlement, the opening ceremony of revitalised Blue House Cluster, Viva Blue House, was held yesterday. As we are the Lead Consultant and Conservation Consultant for the project, our director Mr. Ronald Liang, Mr. Ivan Fu, Mr. Eric CM Lee and Mr. Niki Lai were invited to the ceremony, witnessing this remarkable moment with Wan Chai neighbourhood. Chief Executive Mrs Carrie Lam officiated the ceremony and delivered a speech to celebrate the opening of Viva Blue House. Following the opening ceremony, our architect Mr. Thomas Wong and project representative Mr. Hanny Ng hosted a tour of the revitalised building to introduce the historical background of Blue House Cluster and shared with participants the social significance of revitalisation.
Located at Stone Nullah Lane in Wan Chai, Viva Blue House is Hong Kong’s first revitalisation project that adopts “Retain House and Tenant” approach, which is to revitalise the building into a unique cultural landmark while preserving the original lifestyle at the same time, improving residents’ quality of life and encourage community participation.
