Tai Kwun, Centre for Heritage and Arts
The Hong Kong Jockey Club CPS Limited
Forming a unique cluster of heritage buildings located at the heart of the Central district, the Central Police Station compound—now known as Tai Kwun, Centre for Heritage and Arts—once served as an important base for law and order in Hong Kong. Formally a“one-stop-shop”facility housing a police station, a prison, and a magistracy, the site was fully decommissioned in 2006.
In 2008, the Government of Hong Kong SAR announced its partnership with The Hong Kong Jockey Club to revitalise the Central Police Station compound, and a few years later, Marc & Chantal was given the incredible opportunity to be the creative partners of this one-of-a-kind project.
