OLIV

THEO TEXTURE as Architects

OLIV is a commercial building within the busiest shopping district of Causeway Bay in Hong Kong. OLIV sits on a small urban site of just over 280m2 with a building height of over 100m tall and a floor-to-floor height of 4980mm high. A number of the floors are occupied by retail and F&B tenants.


The design is inspired by the olive tree after which the building was named. The floor plate changes slightly on every floor as the building moves upward giving it a twisting and turning profile. The exterior is wrapped with a “triple skin” on the outside, with an interior orthogonal layer of subframe and mullions, a dark grey glass curtain wall layer, and an organic exterior layer of white cladding. This layer contains the “olive tree knots” which can also be read as radiating stars.These become the signature of the building together with the star at the top of the roof that can be seen at night from afar.
