This 484-meter tower built in West Kowloon is presently Hong Kong's tallest skyscraper. Along with IFC Tower across the bay on Hong Kong Island, the building is a defining landmark amid the nightscape of Victoria Harbor.
The dragon-motif tower façade has LED linear lighting installed in gaps between the exterior's overlapping curtain walls programmed to create a variety of scenes. This dynamic and elegant lighting design endows the Hong Kong nightscape with a new and more refined appearance. In addition, the lighting design of the office lobby highlights its dynamic spatial composition by merging the function and beauty that characterize the space.
