A Lookout Point at Wanchai Gap Park
Wanchai Gap Park is a good lookout point to view South District of Hong Kong Island and linkage with country park. The current site have a playground, a snack shop and one pavilion. However, the design is bit old fashion. It also lack of pavilion when the people buy the food and drinks, so it is not convenience during hot and humid weather condition, since it is too shine during afternoon period. To resolve the problem, it can use the open area to build a pavilion with lookout point. The concept of the pavilion is try to connect with nature. Since it is located near to the country park, so it is suitable to use wood, steel and concrete as the materials. These materials can represent stylish and comfortable feeling to the park users, especially for the timber, it provide warm feeling. Meanwhile, the colour of wood is match with the trees. Besides, Water is the important elements in the nature. So the pavilion also provide a small fountain. So the sound of the water can allow the people have a comfortable and relaxation of mind and body.

Shadow can give a strong power to give form to architecture. So the design also widely to have some space allow the sunlight come to the pavilion, so it can create impression space for the park users.

Harmoniser-Mastering the Art of Balance@WKCD Pavilion Competition Harmony is not only about coherence in the visual sense, but also about a state of mind in which we acquire peace and feel comfortable with the space around us. Overlooking the historical Victoria Harbour and the vast green space at the West Kowloon Cultural District, Harmoniser balances permanence and impermanence, the old and the new. It is a pavilion that provides a free and comfortable space for individuals to unwind and gather. The structure of Harmoniser resembles a shrine, suggesting that visitors are able to cleanse their souls and gain a peace of mind while resting there. The highlight of the pavilion is the connection with nature. The incorporation of bamboo, a fast-growing and modest plant regarded in the Chinese culture, suggests that Harmoniser will help to nurture a new life in the future. The openings at the four sides of the pavilion allows air, sunlight and people to circulate in the space, filling it with energy and hope. The lush garden as well as the table surrounding it in the middle of the pavilion offers a place for a little getaway for urban dwellers. They can embrace the beautiful scenery around Harmoniser and enjoy a sip of coffee.

The estimated cost of Harmoniser is around 2.3 million, inclusive of materials and labour cost. The construction is expected to take 6 to 8 weeks. It is hoped that after Harmoniser has finished its mission, its successor can rise and shine, delivering new experiences to visitors of the West Kowloon Cultural District.
