K11 Musea is a shopping centre on the Tsim Sha Tsui harbour-front in Hong Kong, designed by an architecture team led by Kohn Pedersen Fox.

The retail development is clad in Portuguese limestone, with 4,600 square metres of green walls and a green roof featuring urban farms.

The ten-storey complex is cultural centre for the wider Victoria Dockside development of billionaire property developer Adrian Cheng.

Also led by Kohn Pedersen Fox, the Victoria Dockside includes the 65-storey Rosewood Hotel , the K11 Artus serviced apartments and the K11 Atelier office building.

"The goal of K11 Musea is to become the silicon valley of culture in Hong Kong, injecting art, architecture, design, sustainability and all forms of culture into new consumers' daily lives," said Cheng.

K11 Musea is the work of over 100 collaborators, including Rotterdam-based OMA, landscape designers James Corner Field Operations and local architecture practice LAAB Architects.

Other recent retail openings in Hong Kong include a fashion store filled with honeycomb sculptures and a beauty shop lined with steel shelves.

The stepped form of K11 Musea is surrounded ground level by an arcade-like run of luxury shopping destinations and restaurants.

Inside, the bronze-coloured atrium has a 35-metre-high oculus, shining down on a geodesic ball-shaped exhibition space that merges with the balconies of the upper levels.
