【大廈名字系列 building name series】翠林苑 green villa

2017.2.8 | 薄扶林道 90 pok fu lam road

薄扶林道一帶數十年的屋苑,是真正大家氣的典雅大宅。

據物業網站資料,翠林苑入伙於 1985 年。

仔細分說的話,這是一個屋苑的名牌指示,有點像「水牌」的用途。設立於屋苑的山下街頭;在淺水灣山頂一帶常見。

這個「屋苑水牌」很有味道,因其物料、色調、文字,還有方向指示 - 紙皮石、紅與綠;估計因為減省難度,而將「薄」字造成「泊」加草花頭。

歲月風雨洗刷下的酶黃,更添風韻。

pok fu lam is a historic residential area of elegance. the spread of mansions, houses and estate are of ages in decades and are homes of the opulent.

according to a housing agent website, green villa started occupancy in 1985.

to be precise, this tablet is more a directory. there is the name of the estate, plus the street details, and an arrow to show you the direction.

the mosaic, for one, tells you the history. it is a material very seldom used in buildings and construction of the last two or three decades. the green and red mix is classic. the rain-and-wind wash add a natural colour of age on it.
