Loke Yew Hall, The University of Hong Kong

Pokfulam, Hong Kong

Built in 1912, the neoclassical Main Building incorporating Loke Yew Hall is the founding building of the University of Hong Kong.

Designed by L&O, the Building is an imposing institutional structure built to last. It is spacious, well-proportioned, supported by granite colonnades in the Renaissance style, and surmounted by a tall tower and four turrets, with a great hall and four internal courtyards, two of which have palm trees over 9m tall. The original design of the building provided for a large extension, which was carried out in 1952 in the original style and an extra floor was added in 1958, funded by the grants from the Government.

The building is now a preserved historical building and the exterior is one of the declared monuments in Hong Kong.
