The Design

Converting the Lei Yue Mun Fort, built by the British in 1887, into the Museum of Coastal Defense. Previously inaccessible to the public, the heritage site was opened up with an entrance, a lift tower and a footbridge that leads visitors to the fort.

The Details

Located at Shau Kei Wan, the museum has a total area of 34,200 square metres.
The focal point, a courtyard, is covered by a tensile fabric structure, with underground casements converted into exhibition rooms, offices, retail and audiovisual facilities. A viewing gallery lets visitors see the original channel.
