Leigh & Orange (L&O) has recently completed a new education building, the International Culinary Institute (ICI) for the Hong Kong Vocational Training Council (VTC). It is the latest addition to the VTC Pokfulam campus, making it a hub for hospitality training.

As the first of its kind in Asia, the new campus will offer training programmes and facilities to students covering European, Mediterranean, American, Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines. L&O acted as the Architect and Interior Designer for this world-class facility.

The new campus is inspired by the shape of a SALT CRYSTAL – a basic but magical ingredient that preserves food and brings out tantalising flavors across all cuisines – with the design making use of the multifaceted forms, angular planes and juxtaposing lines characteristic of this crystalline mineral. Surrounded by various heritage buildings in Pokfulam, the building is specially designed to harmonise with its environment.

The new ICI building will without doubt enhance Hong Kong as a culinary destination – attracting master chefs and students alike to teach, learn, compete, and celebrate the artistry of cooking.”
