Renovation of Shatin City Link Plaza
Kowloon Canton Railway Corporation
This is a major renovation and extension of the retail portion for the Shatin Station with the proposed addition placed over the existing rail tracks. The new structure is carefully designed to stand without obstructing and unduly disrupted the service of the trains. The addition will be a light weight, large span steel structure cladded in glass displaying a propensity for a contemporary touch and setting up a scintillating dialogue with the more solid existing building. The structure can also afford fewer columns hitting the ground on the platforms between the tracks. The only realignment necessary for the tracks will be the freight line; the rest (passenger lines) will be kept intact. the podium with the tower and showcasing at the same time the ground entrance.
