Design Scheme

A design scheme for the Jockey Club Campus of Creativity (JC³), formulated in consultation with the University community and neighbouring stakeholders, was approved in June 2017 by the Council for the detailed design development of the JC³.

The Scheme

Conceived of as “a campus within a building”, the JC³ transforms the traditional university environment. The JC³ is a vertically configured mini-campus that integrates learning, living, dining and socialising spaces, optimising the development potential of a compact site.

The architectural design features of the JC³ include:

  • Four distinctive halls of residence in interlocking blocks atop an academic podium;
  • Stepped building heights to add visual interest, enhance air ventilation and provide roof terraces at various floors for student activities;
  • A large central courtyard to serve as an extension of the major circulation spine of the University;
  • Permeable design to improve natural ventilation across Baptist University Road Campus and the neighbourhood;
  • Building setback to improve the streetscape and natural ventilation along Renfrew Road;
  • Provision of greenery space along the frontage on Renfrew Road; and
  • Enhancement of fire services provision, structural efficiency and air ventilation and reduction of building bulk and site coverage.

The Way Forward

  • Communication with the University community and stakeholders is ongoing along the design development to further garner views and opinions on this project.
  • Superstructure works on the project site have commenced. According to the project programme, the project is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2024.
