Architectural Icon and Art Gallery H Queen’s Opens in Hong Kong

The gleaming new 24-story tower in Central boasts unusually high ceilings and reinforced floors to support heavy artworks.

Swiss watchmaking brand Audemars Piguet has also chosen the building for the first Asian location of AP House (pictured here), with a residential-style showroom and entertainment lounge taking up an entire floor.

In a city as space-starved as Hong Kong, H Queen’s comes off as a brilliant solution to satisfy the ever-growing appetite for contemporary art.
