Benoy, a world leader in Architecture, Masterplanning, Interior Architecture and Graphic Design, is proud to announce and celebrate the latest award honours for Hong Kong’s Hysan Place. The International Council of Shopping Centres (ICSC) presented the popular Causeway Bay development with Gold (New Design and Development) and Gold (Sustainable Design) at the ICSC 2013 Asia Pacific Awards hosted in Beijing this week.
“We are thrilled that, for a second consecutive year, a Benoy-designed development has been honoured with the ICSC Gold Award for Sustainable Design, following last year’s win by Parc 66, Jinan. Hysan Place continues to be recognised internationally for its state-of-the-art design and importantly its commitment to sustainability as Hong Kong’s first LEED Platinum certified shopping centre. The award wins have helped to top off a very successful year for Benoy”, commented, Simon Blore, Global Managing Director.
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Hong Kong Chapter has also recognised Hysan Place in its 2013 Design Awards Program. The development took home two accolades winning the Merit Award for Architecture and the Sustainable Design Award for Architecture.
Since opening in August 2012, the 17-storey vertical mall has proven to be immensely successful, enticing new international brands to the Hong Kong market and on its first day of opening attracting over 130,000 visitors. Located in the heart of Hong Kong’s famous shopping district, Hysan Place continues to demonstrate its reputation as an urban retail landmark and a leading example of cutting-edge sustainability.
