Adjacent to Hong Kong International Airport’s (HKIA) Terminal 1, the HKIA Community Building was opened in December 2022, providing a recreational building for airport staff. It is slated to create an engaging and people-centric environment providing a full range of recreational facilities.

Echoing HKIA main buildings, the overall architectural language of the HKIA Community Building adopts simple linear form and vertical fins. It extends the unified image from the airport to the building. Natural sunlight is penetrated into the interiors through the full-height windows, giving extensive views to various out the aspects of the airport.

The HKIA Community Building consists of a clubhouse and staff cafeteria, offering contemporary wellness amenities close to the workplace. Aedas Executive Director Albert Tong describes, ‘We hope to create a multi-functional space and to optimise the facilities for airport staff. The design facilitates a work-life balance and re-energises the staff from fast-paced and challenging workflows through a home-like ambiance.’

Extending over two floors, the clubhouse provides numerous recreational amenities including a multi-functional sports hall, gymnasium, changing rooms, activity rooms, quiet rooms and roof top barbecue area. These facilities all work together to promote a healthy lifestyle and break from the work environment.

Apart from the recreational facilities designed for airport staff, the HKIA Community Building also houses Hong Kong International Aviation Academy to nurture future aviation talents Classrooms are designed to accommodate the aviation classes. Aedas Managing Director Logan MacWatt says, ‘Syncing with the other amenities, the classrooms adopt light beige and blue colours to create a vibrant and professional venue. The random allocation of light tubes resonates with the sunlight up in the air, which delivers an energetic learning environment.’
