EADG: With the completion of major infrastructure project in Central–Wan Chai Bypass, The Wan Chai promenade landscape designed by EADG from Tamar to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre was officially opened to the public in early May 2021.
The majority area of this newly promenade project of 7,800 square metres is to provide lawn space for public strolling and playing. Relaxation facilities, like pavilions in variable form, sitting-out area and topography landscaping were designed sufficiently and properly, allowing visitors to sit back and relax while enjoying the panoramic view of Victoria Harbour.
总体设计 General Design
The Victoria Harbour lies between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Peninsula; as one of the world’s most renowned deep-water harbours, it remains Hong Kong’s greatest natural resource. Hong Kong owes its prosperity and international reputation as one of the major cities of the world to its harbour. The Victoria Harbour has a long coastline, but most of waterfront’s area was inaccessible, attributed to the continuity and functionality of the waterfront promenade on both sides are obstructed. Waterfront space available to the public is limited.
The promenade, located on the reclaimed land from Wan Chai Development Phase II project, by adopting an “incremental approach“, it created a pedestrian walkway with a length of about 560 metres and a width of about 6m, connecting the harbor front area of Central and Wan Chai. It is part of the Victoria Harbour promenade, which has a total length of 5.5 kilometres and is by far the longest promenade in Hong Kong.

The project aims to connect the waterfront on both sides of Victoria Harbour and adding a children-friendly green space along the Wan Chai waterfront for appreciating Victoria Harbour. The different structural parts connected multiple open space and landscape, and strengthen the continuity of the waterfront land.

“FunScape”-对儿童友好的设计 Children-Friendly Design
The activity space at the end near Tamar Park is designed with a “FunScape” theme. Unlike conventional children’s playgrounds mainly featuring fixtures or proprietary playing equipment, the “FunScape” explores an unconventional approach cultivating a free space for improvised games or group activities by way of horticulture design and undulating grass berms with colourful pipes tunneling through the berms.

This open lawn setting not only offers children an inclusive play experience, but it also aims at encouraging children to use their imagination to create their own play space and enjoy a creative play journey at the harbor front. This experimental approach aims to bring new ideas of more innovative children’s play experiences along the waterfront to the future.

“生物多样性”-对自然友好的设计 “Biodiversity”- Nature- Friendly Design
To maintain and enrich the local biodiversity. wildlife-friendly plan species were included to provide food and shelter as well as to create a favourable habitat in the urban context. Trees and shrubs with seasonal flowers were selected to provide a different palette throughout the year. The species selected includes Crateva, Delonix regia, Jacaranda mimosifolia, Tabebuia rosea and Melia azedarach to create larger and more comfortable habitats for animals to live in happily.

For example: Crateva unilocularis can provide food for larvae of Hebomoia glaucippe. Shrubs provide food sources, such as fleshy fruits and nectar for birds and insect pollinators, and facilitate the pollination/seed dispersion of plant species hence enhancing the biodiversity of the area. Two lawn species were adopted aiming to differentiate the green corridor for circulation and the remaining open space for sitting out and play.

“低碳策略”-可持续发展的设计理念 “Low-carbon Strategies”- Sustainable Design
Wan Chai promenade has art installations by artists. A number of sustainable elements have been added to the promenade, including a wind-powered lighting system and solar-powered lamps along the footpaths. Use of trees that fell during typhoons and fabricated a set of public art seats. The designs of these facilities are not only practical and beautiful, but also environmentally friendly.

Since its opening, the promenade has become one of the most popular walking routes between Central and Wan Chai, as well as a popular place for leisure and sports. The EADG design team aims to create a children-friendly and environmental friendly landscape with considering natural environment of the waterfront.
The geographical environment and the needs of citizens are different in each corridor, the design aims to create a waterfront with multifunctional and distinctive characters. With the help of emphasising the relation with the harbour, the cultural and historical context of Wan Chai District and the surrounding environment is to attract the public for the enjoyment.
