Located on the idyllic eastern shore of the city, the Mount Pavilia complex was commissioned by New World Development as part of a lifestyle concept it calls The Artisanal Movement, which focuses on creativity, craftsmanship and community. The complex covers a site area of around 66,800 square meters. The east side is separated from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology by a mountain range while the west side abuts Tai Po Tsai village. The complex combines low-rise housing with a landscaped sculpture park, a gallery and an on-site restaurant, as well as an organic food store. Each residential unit enjoys good views to the distant harbor, nearby mountains or garden. A sweeping bridge connects the clubhouse buildings to form a gateway to the development, which includes 680 apartments set in 25,000 square meters of landscaping.
The building is comprised of white concrete and brick, with a delicate, perforated block work screen running along the facade of the upper floor. The clubhouse features a combination of flat and wavy glazed facades that face a sunken swimming pool, and contains lounges, game and music rooms, as well as sports courts and a gym. Adjoining it, the gallery space hosts a bar and restaurant on its ground floor, with an organic food market, a cafe and laundry services on the two levels above. The actual gallery is set on its uppermost floor.
Landscaping around the development provides residents with an approximately 400-metre-long hiking trail and 950-metre cycling track, while a play park is designed to cater to a range of age groups, from toddlers to older children. The gardens are intended to double as a space where children can learn about sustainability through hydroponics.
