Le Pont

Winner | Hong Kong | BCI Asia Top 10 Developers 2019

Le Pont, a private residence with an astonishing view located close to Tai Lam Chung Reservoir which is also known as “Thousand-Island Lake” for there are hills and uplands inside the reservoir area, forming individual islands when water is filled.

Construction challenged by 700 trees scattered over the relatively hilly landscape, with contours varied approximately from 10mpd to 30mpd. Furthermore, the underground structure of the site was composed of the hard rock layer. Throughout the design process, significant efforts in selecting the location of the basement and the orientation of the building blocks so that the project could leverage on the natural terrain as much as possible to reduce the amount of building the foundation work. A basement was located at the lowest point of the original site to save unnecessary excavation works. Also, two towers were designed to have no basements and sat on a rock directly as big footings. Such planning saved the cost and time of the construction.

The Y-shaped master layout plan facilitated the maximum amount of privacy for the residents with the broadest view without directly overseeing each other’s flat. This project boasted a particular feature, Sky Bridge, 56.11 meters above the ground with the multi-purpose level public area which connected up all of the five residential towers’ rooftops, opening up to the outdoor green environment and extending horizontally to create a dynamic outdoor space with various high-rise terraces and facilities.
