Opening Ceremony of The North Lamma Public Library & Heritage And Cultural Showroom
L&O is delighted to announce that the new landmark building at Yung Shue Wan and Lamma Island, the North Lamma Public Library & Heritage and Cultural Showroom was officially completed. We are thrilled that both the HKSAR Chief Executive and the Secretary of Home Affairs attended and officiated the Grand Opening Ceremony on 10 July, 2019.
The North Lamma Public Library & Heritage and Cultural Showroom is one of the key architectural projects under the Signature Project Scheme (SPS) introduced by the Chief Executive in the 2013 Policy Address. L&O was commissioned by Home Affairs Department as the Lead Project and Design Consultant of the project in Year 2014 and construction commenced in early 2017. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of the consultant team and contractor; and continuous support by the Local Rural Committee, Islands District Council, Home Affairs Department, Leisure and Cultural Services Department and many other stakeholders during the course of Design and Construction, the project was successfully completed in year 2019 for use by the public.
The design concept of North Lamma Public Library cum Heritage and Cultural Showroom aims to exploit the site’s opportunity through maximizing its connection with the ocean both visually and physically as to create a vibrant indoor and outdoor public space for the locals and visitors. The new landmark building within its natural setting is a true microcosmic reflection of Lamma Island, a social and cultural hub where both locals and visitors can mingle and share their appreciation of the unique local culture, history, life style and knowledge.
