William Lim, FAIA, CL3, will conduct a tour of Yung Kee with drinks and canapes custom designed for this special CNY occasion
About this event
It is our pleasure to invite you for a Yung Kee Experience on Monday, January 24, 2022.
To celebrate Chinese New Year, William Lim, FAIA, Managing Director of CL3, will conduct a tour of his recently completed renovation of Yung Kee Restaurant. For William, “It’s a very important place to preserve history. It means a lot to myself and I’m sure it means a lot to other people in Hong Kong.”
We will discover how the remodelling embraced the restaurant’s eclecticism, from the traditional Chinese antiques and art, to the gold dragon and phoenix banquet hall, the diner booths, and dark-green 1970s tiles lining the staircase walls. The three floors were designed to represent different styles and different periods to attract a variety of clientele. William believes heritage preservation can contribute to urban regeneration, as opposed to the traditional Hong Kong practice of demolition and rebuilding.
Yvonne Kam, owner of the restaurant, will also share her views as a member of the third generation to carry on the family legacy.
Drinks and canapes custom designed for this special occasion will be served.
Under the current Hong Kong health restrictions and for us to have a physical event that includes light refreshments, attendees will be required to use the Leave Home Safe app to register upon arrival.
This will be our 2022 First Quarterly Meeting and the event is generously sponsored by Ricardo Lighting and Orientop.
