Chungking Mansions

Hong Kong, Hong Kong (China)

 

Skyscraper Chungking Mansions became famous due to the film of Wong Kar-Wai “Chungking express”. Inside it feels like an ordinary shopping mall from the first sight – currency exchange, dozens of small shops and cafes. It might seem it is a market, but it is only the first floor of the building. Above the shopping mall there are 13 floors more where more than 80 hostels of all kinds and tastes are located. It is thrilling to walk along the endless narrow hallways – seems like you are inside a computer game, not a building. Here it is clearly shown how space is saved in Hongkong. Why waste a separate room for laundry, kitchen or storage room if all these can be placed right in the hall?
