Lady Shaw Roof Garden
Location: Sha Tin, Hong Kong SAR.

SKY YUTAKA were selected to design as architect and landscape designers for the new landscape for the roof of the Lady Shaw building in the Campus of the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Careful planning of landscape elements which frame the backdrop of the natural scenery within the New Territories encourage more rooftop usage and introducing zones for seating and gathering linked by a meandering pathway surrounded by greening, hardscape and carefully selected planting species.
Working within limitations of existing loading capacity, we were challenged to develop a design which would provide much needed addition of amenity space for the university facilities, promoting linkage in the campus and re-inforce the university identity.
