2015-2019; USA Interior Design Best of Year Award, Perspective A&D Trophy Award
Award winning Ocean Terminal Extension is a new signature retail mall and transport terminal situated at the tip of the famous Ocean Terminal at Harbour City shopping mall. Extending out into Victoria Harbour, the mall provides transport facilities, premium retail and F&B spaces with spectacular sea views. ARK was appointed as the interior designer for the project to work in collaboration with Foster + Partners as the design architects. ARK provided interior designs for both the shopping mall as well as the transportation terminal. As a new extension, the building needed to operate as a cruise terminal at the same time and hence the lower floors is a fully operational transport terminus with ticketing,immigration and customs facilities etc. while the top floors provided the shopping mall spaces. ARK design approach was to provide an interior design that complements the architecture of Foster + Partners. Hence, the interior design takes inspiration from forms, finishes and colour of ships and ocean liners. Form and choice of materials streamlined are slick. White colour is extensively used to maintain an airy feeling of the space while dark grey glass, stainless steel and flooring is introduced to give the space a contrasting punch.The project was completed earlier this year and is already becoming a popular new retail experiences and F&B venue in Hong Kong.
