香港建築中心建築講場及導賞 - 活化歷史建築:「We 嘩藍屋」— 從「留屋留人 」到「復修建築,復修社區 」

保育及活化藍屋建築群對城市保育作了示範性的提示。 藍屋建築群是草根階層的寫照,它在灣仔這個急速士紳化的區域,受到拆卸及商業重建的威脅。民間於是發起拯救行動,參與者包括居民,街坊,社工,建築師及保育專家。最後這三幢唐樓得以保存、修復及提昇現代生活設備。這是史無前例的公民力量的成果。在急速都市化,物業經濟掛帥的巨大壓力下,我們保護了本土被邊緣化的文化遺產,確值得其他城市化地區借鏡。
- 節錄自聯合國教科文組織於2017年頒發亞太區文化遺産保護最高榮譽的卓越奬項給藍屋建築群的復修活化項目的評語。

留屋留人,是我們初衷的使命。
復修建築,復修社區,是我們的成果。
藍屋建築群,對於在這裡住了兩三代的老街坊來說,是充滿情感和回憶的家。我們成功保住了這老建築和街坊文化,背後的設計意念就是照顧老街坊對舊物的喜愛和加添一直缺乏的設施。設計行動就包括了復修和干預。復修就是修繕破損了的建築部件及將歷史的真確性展示出來。干預是正面的新設計建築,包括可供聚腳的小公園、將幾幢唐樓連在一起的連接橋、方便上落的電梯、還有提昇生活標準的小型廚房和浴室。新舊鄰居共同建立互助小社區。

HKAC Archi-Talk & Walk: Adaptive Reuse on Historic Building - Viva Blue House - “Retaining Heritage, Repairing Community”

The revitalization of the Blue House Cluster – Viva Blue House – provides triumphant validation for a truly inclusive approach to urban conservation. A broad alliance spanning from tenants to social workers and preservationists waged a grassroots advocacy campaign to save the last remaining working-class community in the fast gentrifying enclave of Wanchai, which was threatened by demolition and wholesale redevelopment. The three dilapidated 20th century shop house blocks were deftly restored for contemporary use and upgraded with modern facilities. This unprecedented civic effort to protect a marginalized local heritage in one of the world’s most high-pressure real estate markets is an inspiration for other embattled urban districts in the region and beyond.
Excerpted from the citation of the UNESCO Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation 2017, Award of Excellence to this project.

“Retaining Building, Retaining People” was our starting mission.
“Repairing Heritage, Repairing Community” becomes our achievement.
Blue House Cluster is a home full of sentiments and memories to many old people who have been living there for 2-3 generations. Succeeding against all odds in safeguarding this cluster of architecture and culture of neighbourhood, the design scheme is formulated to take care of the old relics they like, and provide the new facilities they are lacking of.

The Action is Conservation + Intervention. Conservation includes repairing the deteriorated building fabrics and reveal the authentic historical characters. Intervention includes the design of a new social gathering pocket garden at the rear facades of the buildings, a new circulation of link bridge and lift, and the upgrade of living standard by re-provision of the mini kitchen and bathroom. The old and new neighbours have since formed a co-operative community.

During the tour, Viva Blue House Design Architect Kenneth Tse will expand on this and talk about the background and how the revitalization project was completed. Do not miss this if you wish to know more about it.
