The University of Hong Kong Main Library – New Wing

Completed Project

New Wing brings modern space to historic building

As Hong Kong grew in economic strength, so too did the demand for excellence in education. The University’s expansion fuelled by the demands of an increasing student population for a wider academic curriculum created a need for more resource materials.

The University decided to build a new wing for the existing Main Library. Dragages created a new section of the library worthy of its place alongside the historic 1911 Main Library building. The New Wing successfully added much needed space, allowing the University to expand its educational resources in line with its increased student body.
