A HIGHER CALL­ING

DestinAsian - - GOOD TO GO - —Daniel Har­tanto

In a city as space-starved as Hong Kong, H Queen’s comes off as a bril­liant so­lu­tion to sat­isfy the ever-grow­ing ap­petite for con­tem­po­rary art. The gleam­ing new 24-story tower in Cen­tral boasts un­usu­ally high ceil­ings (at 4.6 me­ters) and re­in­forced floors to sup­port heavy art­works, which can be moved into place thanks to an out­side hoist­ing sys­tem and glass cur­tain walls that can be opened. Apart from a slew of lo­cal gal­leries and global heavy­weights like David Zwirner and Hauser & Wirth, Swiss watch­mak­ing brand Aude­mars Piguet has also cho­sen the build­ing for the first Asian lo­ca­tion of AP House (pic­tured here), with a res­i­den­tial-style show­room and en­ter­tain­ment lounge tak­ing up an en­tire floor ( hqueens.com.hk).
