HONG KONG IS a city of ex­tremes – in cli­mate, land­scape and es­pe­cially ar­chi­tec­ture. Colo­nial mas­ter­pieces ex­ist be­side tow­er­ing sky­scrapers and a dense cityscape is al­ways shad­owed by moun­tains. We are al­ways look­ing up and some­times, we see the most ex­tra­or­di­nary things.

“Ping Shek Es­tate is a public hous­ing es­tate in Choi Hung, com­prised of seven res­i­den­tial blocks,” says Grace Baudy. “The ex­te­ri­ors of these iden­ti­cal build­ings are colour-coded, but the in­ter­nal court­yard at the cen­tre of each build­ing is sim­ply amaz­ing. I got the im­pres­sion of be­ing caught in a tun­nel, sit­ting in a space­craft that’s ready for take-off!”
