Peninsula East is located in Yau Tong, an industrial area in Hong Kong with numerous factories left vacant. As the site is facing the harbour, the design of Peninsula East grasps every opportunity to capture the best sea view while protecting the micro-environment from surrounding industrial emissions. To coexist with factories around the site, the project has taken noise and air mitigations measures to create a habitable environment for residents and users.
The 32-storey composite building offers 256 residential units of various sizes and layouts on an 8-level podium, which includes clubhouse, indoor heated swimming pool, hanging garden and a 4-level car park.
The façade design is achieved by expressing classic and elegancy with simple modern languages. The podium is articulated by elongated grids in beige colour stone claddings while the large fenestrations in dark bronze colour profiles are filled into the frameworks to increase contrast. The entrances of clubhouse and towers are highlighted by elongated portal frames to enhance their grandeur. Additionally, the vertical elements from podium are extended upward to further enhance verticality and create a holistic effect.
The design of the typical plan is a horseshoe-shaped floor creating a courtyard with internal garden view. Peninsula East is the first residential project in Yau Tong that includes an indoor heated swimming pool, offering a luxurious experience for residents.
