JAO TSUNG-I ACADEMY, HONG KONG
The Jao Tsung-I Academy was developed by the Hong Kong Institute for Promotion of Chinese Culture. The former Lai Chi Kok Hospital, a Grade III historic building, was transformed into a dynamic complex for promoting cultural activities. The site reconstruction included landscaped gardens, galleries, exhibition halls, restaurant, theatre, 19 classrooms/workshops, information and resources centres and reading rooms.
We designed a bespoke seating solution encompassing 84 chairs over 8 platforms, with an additional 10 nose mounted row zero chairs to maximise capacity within the venue.
