The Blue House Cluster

The Blue House Cluster

Location:

Client:

Wanchai, Hong Kong

St. James Settlement

Built in the early 19th Century, the Cluster is one of the few remaining pre-war Chinese shophouses in Hong Kong. Restoration and alteration works to the Cluster were kept as minimal as possible in order to preserve the historical value and originality of architectural features.

Extensive efforts were made to strike a balance between preserving building authenticity and complying with up-to-date statutory requirements - thorough researches on various aspects were conducted; local and overseas experts were invited as advisors; and instead of replacement, key existing features were repaired with special proprietary products sourced globally.
