• Barr+Wray design pool systems at the New Kellett School Campus

    22 August 2012

    Barr+Wray were delighted to be invited to the recent ceremony for the laying of the Foundation Stone at the New Kellett School Campus in Kowloon Bay.

    The ceremony was officiated by the former Hong Kong Chief Executive, Mr Donald Tsang, Secretary for Education, Mr Micheal Suen and Mr Andrew Seaton, the British Consul-General.

    Conceived in 1976, Kellett School was founded by parents living in Hong Kong, looking to provide a British Education to their Children.  Nearly 40 years later, they will be opening a ground-breaking new school campus to cater for generations of pupils to come.

    Designed by P+T Architects and scheduled to open for the start of the 2013 Term, the project incorporates a unique rooftop ‘Sky Pitch’ and indoor 25m 6 Lane Competition Swimming Pool. Barr+Wray designed the Ozone Filtration System and Adjustable Swimming Pool Floor System, allowing the pool to be operated at various depths, catering for different user groups, toddlers to competition swimmers, all at the touch of a button.

    The 280-meter-tall Lumina Shanghai, developed by Henderson Land Group and designed by Gensler, is the tallest skyscraper in the Xuhui Riverside District.


    A sophisticated yet modern setting was derived by juxtaposition of Indochine-Vietnamese features and wood-fire inspired material palettes. Re-interpretation of the spatial order of a typical Indochine-Vietnamese mansion has been adopted to give hierarchy, layers and details to the space.
