About the Site Visit 



The new Hong Kong Repertory Theatre Performing Art Education Centre showcases a heritage revitalisation project in Hong Kong that reinvigorates the historical space and transforms the existing building into a sustainable centre for theatre education. The proposed centre is a 3-storey Grade II building situated in the heart of the city and hidden by high-rise residential buildings. It has served as an educational place since the 1920s and will continue in the 21st century. The revitalisation of the building is designed to respect the historical context while responding to the current climatic and ecological environment by adopting active and passive sustainable design strategies to minimise energy consumption, carbon emissions, and waste production throughout the building’s life cycle. The revitalisation project also creates a green oasis for visitors and the high-rise neighbourhood around. This project has received the Green Building Award 2021 – Merit Award.
