We welcome Mr. Raphael Chan on board as a director of Urbanlogic and are looking forward to an increasingly successful strategic alliance.

Wan Chai Parks

In late 2020, URBANLOGIC was commissioned by Architecture Commons to support with a public space research assessment for the District Council in Wan Chai district, an area globally synonymous with the urban vibrancy that epitomises Hong Kong.

This aimed to provide the baseline metrics to provide a common understanding of the public space environment in the district for further consideration and proposal making to improve the public realm of Wan Chai District.
