Live Fine is a renovation project which tests hyper-density and small spaces in Hong Kong. The design is an expansion and a conversion of a vacant office - Mass Resources Development building, creating a tower of floors with extreme compression and an intense mix of use. It takes the view that urban small space can be associated with luxury rather than with poverty, overlapping use of space enriches the lived experience and more is better. It takes HK’s traditional urban culture and characteristics and amplifies them, exploring as many different functions as possible in a very limited place.
