Heatherwick reveals £166m revamp of Pacific Place mall, Hong Kong

Thomas Heatherwick has unwrapped its £166 million ‘organic’ revamp of a 1980s shopping mall and entertainment complex in Hong Kong

The overhaul of Pacific Place, which houses 130 shops including a Harvey Nichols department store, has taken four years to complete and used more than 3,600m2 of elm and ash wood and 36,000m2 of limestone and bedonia stone.

As well as redesigning the facade, lifts and public spaces, the scheme features a new café.

According to a spokesman, the original 1988 mixed-use development at 88 Queensway, in the Admiralty area of Hong Kong, has been made warmer and softer with timber used to ‘eliminate angular edges and create a more natural flowing sensation within the complex’.
