美孚新邨的別有洞天 the wonder world of the mei foo sun chuen podium

2017.2.11 | 美孚新邨 mei foo sun chuen

翻閱美孚新邨的資料,老牌屋苑至今依然擁有不少令人驚訝的數字紀錄。99座樓宇,分八期,經歷十年 (1968-1978年) 建成。

歲月當然令這幅土地累積風韻,但不能不記功當年建築商的視野和內涵。屋苑內很多建築以平台相連,設計實在而美,不單將樓宇連起來,建立社區感覺,居民並可享用公共空間。

最喜歡溜躂屋邨底這層,逛街市、商店之餘,走一段陰暗空間,突然呼嚕一個「圓窗」顯現頭頂,看到欄杆然後樓宇再有天空。

mei foo sun chuen stage 1 was first established in 1968. this private and grand residential estate made many records that are still impressive these days. the project took a decade to complete. it comprises of 99 buildings spreading across eight stages of completion.

i always love walking under these circular skylight windows. what a functional, practical and aesthetic design. this is actually part of the podium the developer/architect built to join most of the buildings in the estate to offer a community sense and public space as well as practical commuting paths around.
