HKICON Conservation Awards 2021

The Hong Kong Institute of Architectural Conservationists (HKICON) announced the winners of the 2021 HKICON Conservation Awards. A jury panel of conservation experts including selected HKICON council members met in late January 2022 to review four submissions spanning two categories—restoration and adaptive reuse. The jury awarded: one Winner in the adaptive reuse category in recognition of their standard-setting restoration and adaptation of an historic building for a new use; one Special Mention in the adaptive reuse category; and one Special Mention in the restoration category in appreciation of their efforts and adherence to standards of best practice in conservation.


Thanks for submitting!
