About the Site Visit
The former headquarters of the China Light & Power Company (CLP) at Argyle Street, Kowloon is adaptively reused as two museums. The Art Deco style building was completed in 1940 with extension and changes over years. The tour will cover the transformation of the building and challenges in complying current statutory requirements. The archive of Hong Kong Heritage Project in the building is also one of the highlights of the visit.
