Hsin Chong was awarded a landmark contract for the main construction work of M+ Museum, Hong Kong’s new museum for visual culture, located in the West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD).
Occupying an area of approximately 60,000 square metres, the upcoming M+ Museum will be situated in the centre of the WKCD, adjacent to WKCD Park. The new museum will be housed in an innovative structure designed by the award-winning Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron together with the Hong Kong firm TFP Farrells and Ove Arup & Partners Hong Kong.
Comprising a semi-transparent vertical tower supported by a horizontal podium, M+ Museum will house research and curatorial centres, along with a range of retail, entertainment and dining facilities in its top floors, while the podium levels will host a diverse array of exhibition spaces and galleries. The ground and basement levels will be home to a learning centre, a moving image centre, creator’s studios and further retail and dining options.
