The former Police Married Quarters (PMQ) in Central is a historical landmark which has been restored to inspire creativity through creating opportunities for aspiring artists, designers and a selected complementary mix of tenants to build and market their brands while promoting the design industry in Hong Kong. The Oval Partnership approached the design of the interior spaces through a series of minimal interventions within a found space to breath life into this historically significant building.
Flexible display systems and a series of temporary and permanent installations are placed throughout the building with the intention of creating a vibrant and visually inspiring environment to activate the spaces between the retail and business units. Working closely with Hybrid (Graphic Designer), a range of furniture, signage and landscaping elements were designed to provide a tool for way finding supported by pop up elements and curated events which aim to energise and enliven the user experience. The Oval Partnership also has a role in the tenant vetting to ensure a diverse and appropriate mix of tenants meet the objectives of this development
