Jardine House Hong Kong : Connaught Place Building
HK Skyscraper Building – design by P & T Architects & Engineers
Location: 1 Connaught Place, Central, Hong Kong
Date built: 1973
Design: P & T Architects & Engineers Ltd
Height: 179m high
This building is easilt recognisable with a regular grid of circular windows, earning it a nickname ‘the building of a thousand ****holes’. Jardine House would be more attractive without its silly angled hat, as the rectilinear extrusion and clean grid of windows makes it quite striking.
Located in the historic centre of Hong Kong by the harbour this 50-storey skyscraper was the tallest building in Hong Kong from 1972 to 1980. It lost the title of Hong Kong’s tallest building to the Hopewell Center.
