The design philosophy for the complex was centred on seamlessly integrating it into the existing Chung Chi Campus. Our primary objective was to maximise the use of natural resources such as wind, light, and greenery through passive sustainable design. We also placed great emphasis on preserving the unique value of the campus by incorporating local materials into the project. We strived to enhance campus walkability, creating spaces to inspire and empower the CUHK community to embrace a green lifestyle and serve as a sustainability prototype for future projects.

Juryโ€™s Citation: โ€œThe Chung Chi Student Development Complex has dramatically enhanced the CUHK campus’s connectivity by providing a walkable campus life in the university. The project also creates a diversity of communal spaces inside the building to encourage social and cultural interaction. It utilises a variety of green architecture, including the extensive use of passive design to allow natural light and ventilation penetrations, enabling students to experience a sustainable lifestyle. The carefully
planned waste management and pollution control measures during construction effectively reduced the volume of waste requiring disposal and abated environmental nuisance. The project is an excellent showcase of biophilia and wellbeing campus development.โ€

We are delighted to see this recognition of the team’s dedication and commitment to creating a greener future. Congratulations to the entire project team! Together, let’s keep leading the way towards a sustainable tomorrow!

The GBA 2023, themed “Embracing Wellbeing โ€ง Excellence in Sustainable Built Environment”, is co-organised by the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC) and the Professional Green Building Council (PGBC).
