Join us for an exclusive tour of Benevolence House, the award-winning teaching block at St. Stephen’s College in Stanley. Designed by Philip Liao & Partners, Benevolence House won a 2022 AIA Hong Kong Merit Award in Architecture for its innovative design and sustainable features.
During the tour, Philip Liao will guide us through the master planning and overall design of the building, showcasing how it connects the upper and lower campuses of the College and blends the new with the old.
We will also learn about the building’s many sustainable features, including a self-sufficient photovoltaic system, sun-shading fins, cross-ventilated and naturally lit spaces, and the use of sustainable building materials and furniture. And, we’ll discover how these features benefit both the end-users and the environment.
The tour also includes a visit to the campus’ historic buildings, where their history and conservation concerns will be displayed and discussed. This will be a unique opportunity for you to learn about the school’s legacy and to see how it has evolved over time.
Don’t miss this chance to see the future and the past come together in one amazing tour!
