What an amazing year this has been for one of Hong Kong’s foremost architects, Steve Leung! The founder of the Steve Leung Design (SLD) Group, and former A&D Awards judge, has picked up two significant personal awards and overseen the publication of a stunning collection of his lifetime work and achievements. Plenty of reasons to celebrate in his sixty-fifth year!

Young Malaysian architect Shyuan Kuee is understandably proud of 1 Lasam, the first Green Building Index (GBI)-certified property in the state of Perak. Notable for its striking “floating boxes” design, the five-storey office block is just one of many projects that reflect her passion for responsible and sustainable architecture.
When you first lay eyes on Splendour on the Peak, four Art Deco-style mansions with breath-taking views of Victoria Harbour, you half expect to see a Hollywood A-lister emerge to greet you. As it happens, it’s not such a fanciful notion. One of the four, named Carlyle, was home to Nicole Kidman during a recent shoot in Hong Kong.
The thing that impressed me was the youthful spirit. Young designers, young practitioners. You could feel the spirit and quality of their work. That’s encouraging.
Congratulations to the A&D Awards for celebrating excellence in architecture. I hope more professionals join in the coming years to make its impact even more far-reaching.
Thank you, A&D Awards. You’ve been an amazing support for our practice. Without you, I think we would not be where we are today.
The standard of entries was very high… I learnt a lot from them. I think they are an insight into Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area.
My advice is if you don’t enter you will not know how good or bad you are. So enter and share your projects on a great platform of design.
I’ve seen some really good projects and outside the box concepts, so I can’t wait to see more interesting work next year.
I think the projects are of really high caliber, and the awards are an endorsement of the quality of design. I think everyone should support them.
