Laman PKNS

The new headquarters with signature cantilever roof and curved building shape

Winner | Hong Kong | BCI Asia Top 10 Architects 2018

The new PKNS headquarters is designed for lower energy consumption and emissions using the three inter-related aspects of passive design, active design, and operations and maintenance.

The thermally-efficient building envelope—with double glazed windows, a specially composed exterior/spandrel wall, a green roof and additional insulation between mechanically ventilated floors—is a key factor behind reduced cooling requirements. The ceiling along the façade perimeter is also designed with an angled slope to maximise the depth of natural light penetration.
