The Pavilion’s simple and elegant structure provides a generous sheltered space for public use in the park as well as event & exhibition space for various size and type under different occasions.

The pavilion is situated at the southern tip of the West Kowloon district. One side of the pavilion is facing southwest which has a panoramic costal view of HK Island. The other side is facing northeast which opens up to the performance arts area. The rectilinear form has no front or back, leaving it free to be explored from all directions of the surrounding.

The overall size of the pavilion is 18m by 30 m that consist of a main roof and 3 plinth supports. This welcoming open-structure blurs the building boundary and its surrounding park.
The permanent ancillary functions are housed inside the supporting plinths, whereas the flexible event & exhibition space are fragmented into four large and small galleries that are juxtaposition in different locations under the main roof.

The four galleries can be lifted up and down mechanically by hydraulic arms to cater for different scenarios. This means the pavilion can be functioned as an all-open pavilion space to a partial-open exhibition and event space.
