Met Studio will pick up design fees of more than 200 000 for designing interiors and exhibitions for a 3.75m health education project in Hong Kong.
The consultancy has been appointed by Hong Kong’s Urban Council Health Education Unit to create concepts for its Health Education Exhibition and Resources Centre.
The centre, to be housed in an existing building in Kowloon Park, is billed as the first of its kind in Hong Kong. It consists of a 1075m2 exhibition area, a 400m2 outdoor garden, a reference library, a 50-seat lecture room, a studio and offices. Met will be working with a local architect to carry out changes to the building.
The centre will be a “lively and informative exhibition on health and hygiene, spread over two floors”, says Met managing director Alex McCuaig. Temporary exhibitions will provide information on current topics of concern.
The centre, due to be completed at the end of 1996, aims to “enthuse visitors about good health, as well as providing a dynamic and valuable resource for the people of Hong Kong”, comments McCuaig.
