The culturally and culturally oriented area of Hong Kong is generally close to the home and closely connected with the community, which is like a utopia in a city-city gap, helping to promote the artistic development of the community as a whole. Under high rents and economic benefits for every building, the cultural project of this kind of activation of old buildings not only provides artists with living space, preserves the way of production for the development of Hong Kong's cultural and creative industries, but also frees up an oasis for the city to breathe oxygen.
Overlooking Wenhua New Village, it is like two "Tian" word connected up and down, 5 horizontal 3 vertical, a total of 8 residential buildings are arranged neatly, every two rows, a total of four rows, each one with "Wen" word beginning, every street also with "Wen" switch, so it is called "Bawen building." In 2009, the West Railway Austin Station opened, so that the traffic in Wenhua New Village greatly improved, only 3 minutes walk to the subway station, high-speed rail station and the square and other places are very convenient.
Cultural Village is also called Ba Wen Lou. Its predecessor was the Yau Ma Tei Wharf Warehouse and the old gas plant of China Gas Company. Later it was developed into a residential building called Jia Lian Xin Lou. Because it is close to the Jordan Road Ferry Terminal and the bus terminal, the transportation is convenient and attractive. A lot of middle class moved in. However, a total of more than 3,000 residential units make the area densely populated. Coupled with the aging of buildings and land reclamation, the original sea-view houses have turned into inland houses, so the middle class retreated from here. The current environment is compared with the time. A lot of mess.
These eight old-style houses are nothing special. The buildings are more than half a century old, and the roads and sidewalks inside are also relatively narrow design. Because it is a small community, shopping and eating in the area are convenient and slightly cheaper than outside.
The Wenhua New Village at the intersection of Kowloon’s Ferry Street and Jordan Road is composed of 8 buildings beginning with the word "文", arranged in the shape of "Tian" as a whole. They were completed between 1964 and 1970. There have been fifty buildings since then. A few years of history. From the outside, it is densely packed, just like the handshake building in Shenzhen. With the aging of the overall building age, coupled with such dense design, and convenient for the hiding and escape of bad elements, the public security here is not very good.
