Earning a Merit Award in the Projects Under Construction/Design Residential category, the KPF-designed development was recognized for its outstanding contributions towards a sustainable built environment.
Baker Circle, a seven parcel, nine tower neighborhood in Kowloon, is designed to be an urban oasis that promotes well-being for tenants and the community. The project integrates plentiful outdoor terraces, incorporates solar panels at the street level, and targets LEED Gold for commercial elements and WELL Platinum for the residential portion. The team worked with KPFui to utilize proprietary software to analyze various massing options, ensuring that the design maximizes unobstructed views to the city and harbor and reduces shadows cast on major public spaces.
