Revitalization Scheme at Wong Uk

Wong Uk Village was founded approximately 200 years ago in Sha Tin. Within this village, a 100-year old building which was of typical of Southern Chinese vernacular archi­tecture typology with a two-storey green-brick gable-roofed structure was listed as one of the HKSAR Revitalization Scheme Batch II. HKU’s Community Project Workshop’s short-listed proposal called for a sensitive approach to the site and landscape, where new facilities were integrated into the surrounding greenery with community components such as horticulture therapy and organic farmland for nearby schools and elderly homes.
