Hong Kong Science and Technology Park Data Technology Hub
Hong Kong Science and Technology Park (HKSTP) Data Technology Hub (DT Hub) is a purpose-built space providing data-centric working space, world-class convention and exhibition facilities and professional communal space to attract top-notch technology and data talents and support data research and technology development in Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area.
The design aims to deliver a “Home away from Home” environment in the building far from the CBD core area. Therefore, the design concept is a fusion of “Urban Home”. “Urban” is a sense of setting the scene: the raw finishes, industrial planes, and contemporary fixtures, all relating to the nature of an industrial warehouse. While “Home” brings the collective comfort and draw to base that Home is associated with.
Emphasizing the human-centric aspect of the new era ethos and experiential nature of high technology and culture. A Hong Kong “Dai Pai Dong” Street Food Stall style food hall on the ground floor delivers a high-tech food offering and accommodates dining, meeting and co-working needs in a collective format, within beautiful surrounds of this bespoke interior.
DT Hub also promotes the creation of a built form that encourages movement, engagement, and connection. MICE rooms, Showcase and Business Centre on the first floor are positioned as an informal setting that encourages relaxation and opportunities for natural collaboration with its unique layout and interactive environments.
There is a common room or pantry on each floor providing a welcoming space and social opportunity for talents to meet, to exchange ideas or to co-create.
The need for increased space diversity and flexibility is setting a new trend in the industry. Especially, in the post-Covid era, commercial space always relies on a space designed to be extra flexible and multi-functional, blurring the boundary between “Home” and workplaces. DT Hub provides variety and choices for talents to collaborate with teams in enclosed group spaces, or work individually in private areas, or relax over a coffee in a quiet and beautiful environment. Overlapping spaces in DT Hub invokes not only visual interest but also physical connection.
