The construction of 4-storey sports centre, 6-storey community hall and district library were completed in March 2016 and they have adopted passive designs to facilitate natural ventilation and the use of daylight to reduce consumption of energy significantly. Furthermore, renewable energy technologies including photovoltaic system and solar hot water system are installed for environmental benefits.
The building form is in composition of different volumes to create important green void spaces in the design. 15m wide ventilation corridor with multi-levels landscape deck at various levels is introduced between the volumes. The location of such ventilation corridor is designed in response to the existing massing disposition of the adjoining residential towers immediately behind the site. The void spaces are designed to be green, open, naturally ventilated and penetrated with natural day light for public use.
