About

A significant cultural landscape conservation project that helped sustain Tai O village. As part of the first batch of the Revitalizing Historic Buildings through Partnership Scheme, the adaptive reuse of the Old Tai O Police Station as Tai O Heritage Hotel injected new life into Tai O’s cultural landscape, and successfully reconnected the strong historic social networks between police and villagers. The annual festive events and cultural programs help sustain area businesses and hotel operation, illustrating that a successful revitalization project can strengthen community values while highlighting Hong Kong’s rich cultural history.
