    Kennedy Town By TFP-50A company spokesperson stated that this was a rewarding moment for the practice in developing a station terminus in an old and heavily built-up district. Kennedy Town Station is a two-level structure with three entrances. Entrances are integrated with the re-provisioned playground and a green minibus boarding/alighting area. Natural materials and colours pay respect to the adjacent historic stone walls, colonised by 120-year-old Banyan trees, which were carefully preserved during station construction. Commuters arriving by other means of road transport can transfer to MTR under a protective canopy extending from the station entrance. As the station is not deep into ground, residents take only one short escalator ride to reach the concourse level of the station, while the glassed-in entrances and lift shafts allow daylight to reach parts of the station interior. Community artworks adorn the concourse and reflect the unique characteristics of Western District. The extension of Island Line to Western District comprises three new stations, namely Kennedy Town, HKU and Sai Ying Pun stations.

    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.
