This building is easily 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.

Formerly known as Connaught Centre this office tower is located in Central, on Hong Kong Island.
