Cathay Pacific Headquarters Building
Chek Lap Kok International Airport, Hong Kong



New Headquarters Facility for Cathay Pacific on the Hong Kong International Airport

The client requested a 1,000,000sq ft facility and the creation of a "Cathay City" environment. The facility was designed and constructed in fast track method and opened within 3 years of the initial commission. It  comprised of 660,000sqft offices, immigration control areas (crew processing centre), workshops; a 25 storey 500 bedroom 4-star hotel, leisure centre and gym, organised around an internal street which linked all spaces together, containing food court, restaurants, karaoke bar, retail units, and other staff facilities.

Steve Palmier was Senior Architect on the project responsible for all the exterior and interior cladding, the detailing and the 25 storey 4-star Hotel in its entirety, leading a team of 20 technicians and junior architects.

This project was completed while working at LD Architects in 1997.
