A soon-to-be shining symbol of illumination — honoring the rich heritage of Chinese culture.
The Xiqu Centre will be the newest venue in the West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD), occupying a prime site of 13,800 square meters at the eastern edge of the city. The project is set to be completed in 2016, and home to a main theatre of 1,100 seats and a 400-seat tea house featuring traditional Chinese performances, will be equipped with arts educational facilities, retail, dining, and entertainment spaces. This signature facility will be the home base for the preservation and development of Xiqu (Chinese opera) in Hong Kong.
HLB teamed up with Bing Thom Architects and Ronald Lu & Partners to collaborate on this world class facility and will be developing high performance, energy efficient designs for exterior and interior lighting for all public spaces within the project.
