唐樓賜予的美感與動感 the beauty of tenement houses

2017.03.01 | 元州街 273 un chau street 很喜歡這種較剪式唐樓樓梯的設計,為街道的上空,不但勾勒出硬朗的幾何畫面,更投入一種動感。 這裡還一連三樘的樓梯,彷彿在這舊區的大氣放下一座手風琴,隱約感受到老舊時光的音符。 可惜的是樓宇老舊,也缺少保養,不知多久這裡會淪入發展的時代巨輪下。 i always find this kind of staircases really awesome looking. it is scissor-like, coming in par, putting outside the tenement houses or tong lau on one side. not sure if residents finding them comfortable to use but they certainty strike a great visual effect to […]

九龍塘老大宅 a mansion in kowloon tong

2017.06.04 | 劍橋道 cambridge road 九龍塘的確是一個優雅的社區。年華老去,繼續擁抱人口和房屋密度低的幽靜地利,讓這片花園城市一路淡淡地透露雍容華貴。 這座年邁的大宅,坐落劍橋道的一端。沒有查究她的歷史,就好好靜靜欣賞她從前的風光和現在的從容。 kowloon tong is a blessed area. back in the olden days of the british-hong kong government rule, it was developed with the concept of a “city garden”. today decades after, this place is still benefiting from the low density and greenery. this district used to be a favorite […]

永康街唐樓 walk-ups on wing hong street

2017.4.7 | 永康街與福華街 wing hong street crosses fuk wa street 說永康街,愛旅遊的香港人可能首先想起台灣的同名街道。香港這條街位於長沙灣。 說福華街,大家比較熟悉深水埗那段,原來這條街一直伸展到長沙灣來。 沒有找到有關這幾棟樓的資料,於是決定這篇一破本部落的平日格式,展示幾張而非限於一張照片。主要因為覺得這幾棟樓雖然年邁,特別看樓上有些鐵框玻璃很老舊,但總的感覺是健壯。尤其向永康街一邊,最愛那些後樓梯構成的幾何畫面;還有,樓下車房,非常唐樓的風光,但這種非常有味道的風光已經買少見少。 this is one old stretch in cheung sha wan. it was the first time i came around this side on kowloon peninsula. the view is typical tang lau old hood. low-rise old buildings with street level space occupied by garage and car […]
