Located within adjoining floors of an office tower above the bustling streets of the Causeway Bay district in Hong Kong, theF22 Foto Space is a gallery and cultural hub for the exhibition and incubation of photography and design. The gallery is a less formal extension of the F11 Photography Museum, located a few minutes away in the Happy Valley neighborhood of Hong Kong. By comparison to the global scope of the F11 Museum, F22 is meant to promote young, local photographers and artists from the Hong Kong and East Asian region. The brief for the space included a flexible event and gallery space, a small bookshop, office space for curators, a climate controlled photo archive room, a social space for staff and a conference room and lounge for meetings and events. The project is an interior design for the adaptive reuse of a former night club and commercial office space.
