melborune plaza 萬邦行

2010.2.6| melborune plaza 萬邦行| 萬邦行毗鄰陸海通大廈/地盤,所以外牆看到樓拆後的疤痕,不過也因此有幸看到從前沒有留意到,近樓頂的金色方塊裝飾細節。樓階式房頂設計,據讀過香港建築書本解說,從前的政府有規定(俱往矣!),那是讓光線還可以透進街下周圍。大樓最覺可愛的,當然是她多窗,而且像手風琴般,給予建築跌宕的音樂感。

中環沿皇后大道中還悻存好幾棟數十年的商業大樓,她們外形雍容大方,內隴踏實同時風雅。希望陸續在這裏繼續介紹。

treasure greatly the granny buildings in the central. they were built a number of decades ago, elegant in styles and sturdy in structure and character. there are many goods of today steel and glass skyscrapers, however certain aroma from the architecture and interior design details of these old-style buildings are unbeatable.

melbourne plaza is one of them. grab any chance you could to walk around the lobby and shopping arcade, they are so 60s 70s hong kong. here is a photo of its exterior. on its left is the luk hoi tong building construction site, thus the scar. simply love the elegance of the lines and slight touch of the golden patches near the top; most charming are the movement provided by the accordion-shaped windows; and respect to the humanity of the architecture – the stepping top is to allow sunlight to come thru down to the road.
