• Ocean Park Summit earns Special Jury Award at MIPIM Asia

    30 December 2012

    Leigh & Orange’s Ocean Park Summit project was awarded the Special Jury Award at the MIPIM Asia Gala Dinner held in November.

    L&O Jury prizeLeigh & Orange is a long term partner with both local and international theme park developers. Since the establishment of the first theme park in Hong Kong in the 1970s, the practice has been continuously involved in the development, rejuvenation and expansion of theme park attractions, meeting both client and public expectations in delivering high quality facilities and rides that thrill both local and international visitors. 

    Ocean Park Summit, part of Ocean Park’s Master Redevelopment Plan completed in 2012, consists of three major lands – Rainforest, Thrill Mountain and Polar Adventure – for which Leigh & Orange was the Lead Consultant and the Architect.

    Thrill Mountain offers park guests a high-energy experience of amusement rides including Hair Raiser, Bumper Blaster, Whirly Bird, Rev Booster and The Flash. The land is designed as a contemporary boardwalk – borrowing the eclectic mix of unique food and variety of ride experiences once found in nostalgic seaside resorts, updated and re-imagined by adding a layer of popular youth culture.

    Polar Adventure is a world-class conservation and edutainment platform featuring penguins, walruses, spotted seals and more. The adventure consists of two walk-through attractions. The North Pole Encounter offers views of different pinniped species from above and under water – while at the South Pole Spectacular, guests enjoy up-close encounters with penguins in an open exhibit with viewing chambers, balconies and glass-panelled floors offering underwater views. Display and educational interpretive exhibits convey the plight of polar wildlife living under the threat of global climate change.L&O Summit 2


    Polar Adventure has taken a comprehensive and innovative green approach to the design, which provides a comfortable environment for polar animal ambassadors to live and reproduce, while offering guests eco-friendly and immersive platform to learn about polar wildlife. With all the green features in place, the Park has successfully lowered annual electricity consumption by 34%, while the Polar Adventure exhibits are comparable to a Hong Kong Level 1 energy-labelled refrigerator in terms of energy-efficiency. 

    The MIPIM Asia Awards jury selected the best projects from the Asia Pacific property market. Among all the 30 winning projects, Leigh & Orange’s Ocean Park Summit project was selected by the jury panel for the Special Jury Award.
