Tsuen Wan

The waterfront promenade next to Tsuen Wan West station is well-manicured and stretches a long section of coastline.

Several major residential projects are under construction right above the train station, taking advantage of the sea views.

Nan Fung Cotton Mills was established in the 1950s at a time when Hong Kong was a major textile manufacturing centre. The factory closed in 2008 and the site became a warehouse until 2014 when its owners decided to revitalize the site.

One of the stores is a studio recycling old fabric into new clothing.

The Hall is a hollowed-out 3-storey space that brings natural light into the building.

The factory's timber doors were in good condition and were repurposed into benches and signage.

Mill 4's staircase was kept in its original condition with peeling green paint offering a huge contrast to the modern shopping mall outside.

The 2 roofs have been transformed into a garden and public space.

The Wavy Weaving Wall is over 24m long and is the work of a local artist depicting the manufacturing of textiles.

More murals adorned Pak Tin Par Lane on the ground floor.

Photos from the factory noted most workers were female, and were highly-skilled to produce cotton yarn.

The "Unsung Hero" portrait is carved and drilled directly into the factory's facade.
