Entry Description

“There is no doubt that a lack of land sales by the administration under former chief executive Donald Tsang resulted in a housing shortage.” During the past decades, it was prevalent to see dense cities like Hong Kong suffer from ridiculously high price in housing, where the new generations couldn’t buy a property until they are 40s due to the lack of land issue. Yet Intertwine is an housing experiment which aims not only to provide alternatives for future living, but also create a self-sustainable housing prototype.
The proposal was to challenge whether slope is friendly to do a housing prototype. It aims to utilize every sloping condition and provides necessary programs not only for the residents but also the neighborhoods, which also aims to tackle the most paramount issue ( inconvenient for residents to the town.)
