The Entrance | Wong Tung & Partners Limited | World Design Awards 2021

Wong Tung & Partners Limited: Winner of World Design Awards 2021. The project is situated in a new residential area overlooking the Starfish Bay and Tolo Harbour with the back drop of the mountain called Ma On Shan.

The strong connection with nature and the tranquility of the surroundings  make the project an ideal place of living.

It comprises of three 21-storey highrise towers with 148 units of luxury apartment ranging from 85 sqm to 153 sqm in size, and 6 nos. of garden units. There are 2-storey podium clubhouse and 2-storey basement carpark.


The design concept of WAVES draws inspiration from its local context – being close to the sea.

The use of the white and blue colour and the curvy architectural features mimics the wave pattern, creating a lively character of the architecture.


More curvy architectural elements were applied in different areas to mimic the “wave” concept and unite the building theme.


The buildings were designed to be single aspect so that every single unit can capture the splendid sea view of Starfish Bay.


One of the main design objectives of the project is to allow each units to have both the sea view and the mountain view. However, the windows facing mountain side are affected by the noise from the adjacent highway.

Therefore we designed the building with openable windows facing sea and fixed double-glazed windows facing mountain. By doing so, the units can enjoy views of both directions without being affected by the traffic noise.
