明華 – 公眾騎樓好風光 good old public verandah of ming wah

2013.3.23 | 筲箕灣明華大廈 ming wah dai ha, shau kei wan

明華在六七十年代建成。是我非常欣賞的華人建築師司徒惠(及其事務所)的手筆。

明華大廈依山而建,所以地下也高人一等。地下大堂,寬敞通風。

騎樓的設計,對居民空間對周圍環境對空氣流動寄上尊重。簡單大方的座位,為風光點睛。

人的居所,當有呼吸、放眼、伸展、停留的空間。

ming wah dai ha was built in the 60s and 70s on a hilly area along a kung ngam road, shau kei wan. there are 13 buildings in this public estate.

this is the public veranda/ground floor of one of the buildings.

what a wonderful community space. the balcony is spacious, airy, with 180 degree view. the seating is neat and almost gracious. and the view of a very nice neighbourhood. if i live around here, i will spend a lot of time here.
