-EDITORIAL PICK of Hong Kong Drone Port Competition


Central Drone Office (Central DPO) is located above the former Hong Kong General Post Office. Retaining part of the existing facade language, Central DPO structured programs vertically with increasing privacy and restrictions zones towards the top.

Central DPO serves as a new form of gathering point, where the public could enjoy unique entertainment experiences and interactions in the public zone. Research and repair centers are located in the middle zone for startups and companies, facilitating educational workshops for our future generations. An ample amount of space is reserved for temporary storage under the increasing demand for package delivery by drones. Intermediate stops are also located on the rooftops of buildings to improve the efficiency of delivery. The government city scan office and emergency unit are located at the top part of the building, supervising the use of drones and delivering emergency rescue kits.

Central DPO acted as the testing ground for vertical circulation with drones. With less restriction in vertical circulation, it allows more freedom for the massing to cater public’s visual and spatial experience. Openings at different levels allow flexibility in accessing the building, the overall interior aims to provide a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere for the public.
