Application of design of Rolls Royce in Hong Kong: June 21-30, 2014
Hip Shing Hong Group of Companies, in collaboration with Stefano Tordiglione Design Ltd and It’s LIQUID Group, is proud to present “Genesis Building Rolls Royce Car Competition”.
Genesis is a factory-building-turned-office project in Wong Chuk Hang, Hong Kong. The building is now undergoing extensive design and renovation to revitalize the site into an art and creativity hub. With the purpose of rejuvenating the premises with modern energy and fitting it with a contemporary design, this old building is once again fulfilling the needs of modern life.
The concept of the current design of the building includes the elements of the 70′s design, the era when the building was initially built. Joining hands with Italian interior designer Stefano Tordiglione, the building incorporates Italian and Hong Kong 70′s design elements, transforming the old into new, blending the East with West. It will be the new cultural identity of Island South of Hong Kong, a landmark of its own personality.
The Rolls Royce car is a part of the design to be displayed in the lobby of the building Genesis.
Artists are invited to re-work on the design of the body of the car. The purpose is to encompass the theme of‘Innovation’, ‘Energy’ and ‘Creativity’, and at the same time, retain the elegance and luxurious identity of the premises.
