窗全部都是窗  windows, a wall of windows

2019.01.04 | 黃大仙彩虹道 choi hung road, wong tai sin 大成街街市,不是老街市,大概是近二十年的產物,建築本身未有適切打理,不舊但殘。二來時代的步伐越趨急速,當今社會一兩年已是一代的轉化。現代建築,開窗似乎已經不流行很久了。看著這堵窗牆,很愛因為愛窗,也因為感嘆普通物之美少人欣賞或人就是匆忙不停留看看周圍平常風光。 this belongs to tai shing street market. i love wet market. it is not a simple task in hong kong. you’ve got to embrace all the filthy, smelly elements in the same package. but the sound the light the crowd the air inside a wet […]

銅鑼灣轉角唐樓 – 富興大廈 the walk-up building around the corner of times square

2017.3.4 | 羅素街 60 russell street 銅鑼灣一直熙來壤往,隔一陣子就有新形或翻新建築商場酒店等落成。故此大家印象都是鮮亮的鋼筋玻璃大樓,五光十色的燈影外牆視覺裝飾。似乎都忽略了四處還錯落好些舊樓。 老實大方的唐樓建築,看上去感覺就是踏實,因為室內空間寬闊,而外觀線條和設計簡單而順溜。 近來,時代廣場羅素街馬路斜對面的這棟商住唐樓,又完成一輪改裝/翻新。不知道大家會否看不慣,實在卻是將建築還原。多年來密封的外牆,讓租客房主享受最大的室內空間,卻是犧牲了原來唐樓的騎樓/涼台設計和空氣流轉美。 causeway bay always give people the impressions of glitz, density and speed. people dash in and out shopping malls, eateries and entertainment venues. but every time when i walk pass some modern and posh gigantic building blocks, i feel glad that there are still quite many old […]

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 […]

2015.10.8 | 東邊街電車路交界  des voeux road west and eastern street 每次坐西行電車進了西營盤,雖然已經經過這一帶千次甚至萬次,一直沒有看膩,還是覺得很多精彩在路兩旁:舊建築、老鋪、海味、鹹魚、臘味,視覺美感氣味傳統渾成老火湯的氛圍。 到了東邊街口,這棟較新一代的唐樓最吸我視線。你猜到寶藏在哪? 長方舊式的鐵窗花窗戶!全棟樓,每層窗戶延展,齊齊整整,而且沒有一家突然裝上新的鋁窗,所有窗戶是一式一樣的。 當陽光角度調準,樓房反映光影,我會覺得比鑽石盒子的光芒更迷人。 這照片,正如文首所言,是在電車上看的拍的。要說聲對不起,拍攝時間光線不足。 順帶一提,遠處有個圓球頂的建築,就是賦予西環另一意義的中聯辦的所在。 i only knew the name of this building when tried looking up its location on google map. it certainly has a name that mark its characters. this i believe is a younger generation of the walk-up building. it has […]
