A layered ribbon edge, the harbour wall from Salisbury Garden to the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, delicately waves with the lapping of soft white light.

The light layers reinforce the presence of the new landscape from across the harbour by night connecting with the movement and animation of the water.”

With both the K11 New World Development to one side and the Hong Kong island skyline as a backdrop over the harbour, the habitable landscape remains quiet. Relative darkness is a theme continued from the landscape of Salisbury Garden. The long pedestrian thoroughfare is discretely lit from columns and the balustrade edge. The highlight and softly lit punctuation's of landscape sculptural forms along its length.





All light sources are LEDS mounted within weatherproof, marine resistant enclosures. Balanced light scenes can be adjusted using a fully automated lighting management system.
