SKY-GARDEN APARTMENT





Hong Kong



The apartment tower is located in Prince Edward, Hong Kong. It consisted of 33 stories including car park levels, mechanical floor and a “sky garden” along with the residential upper structures above the transfer plate. The design called for an irregularly shaped transfer plate to adapt to modern architecture concept.





The first project approved by Hong Kong Buildings Authority that utilized typical floor flat slabs as part of the main lateral wind force resisting system. The tower is one of the earliest buildings with transfer plates modeled and designed as a single structure using the then newly released ETABS version with the capability to idealize concrete shell elements in the modeling of transfer plate.
