|The new home of the Asia Society on the former army site|
Previously the Asia Society would rent rooms in places like the Hong Kong Club or in hotel venues.
But now it has a place it can call its own.
|The reception area is large and very contemporary looking|
In the beginning of the 20th century it was taken over by the navy, and then was used as storage up until the 1970s when it became a depot. After the 1980s the site was unused until the government gave the building and the site to the Asian Society.
It's taken 10 years to come together and HK$400 million as well as donations, and the end result is a modern-looking space that can be used for exhibitions, lectures and presentations.
Downstairs is a small gift shop and the AMMO Cafe.
|The multipurpose function hall has a different view of the city|
