This high-rise home concept by Kwong von Glinow won a competition that looked into "new housing typologies for Hong Kong." The Chicago studio reimagined the traditional urban living space to foster more opportunities for neighborhood growth and socialization.

Kwong von Glinow's award-winning concept boasts a vertical housing arrangement, where apartments expand upward instead of horizontally. Each dwelling for the high-rise home development will be prefabricated and assembled off-site. Answering to contemporary preferences in design, Kwong von Glinow allows room for the customization of each unit. Afterward, the units will be brought together and stacked upon each other to create a high-rise home building that is multifunctional, dynamic and cutting-edge. Through strategic arrangement, the architects allow room between each unit — a feature that is designed to stimulate communal activities.
