About The Green Hub: The Green Hub (the Old Tai Po Police Station) is a unique heritage place which is historically, architecturally and ecologically significant.
The Green Hub project has transformed the Old Tai Po Police Station, a Grade 1 historic heritage to hub for sustainable living. The Green Hub’s Heritage Tour is a free-of-charge service for visitors to learn how we conserve the historic and architectural values of the building, as well as the trees and the egretry of ecological importance at the Old Tai Po Police Station.
Under the Revitalising Historic Buildings through Partnership Scheme (the R-Scheme), Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden (KFBG) adopted an integrated approach to conserve the Old Tai Po Police Station and transform the historic heritage site into a Green Hub for sustainable living. Today, the Green Hub is an inspirational educational centre and offers wide-ranging educational opportunities for the public. Often described as a green oasis in the concrete jungle, it is a pioneer of low-carbon diet, and green architecture, a place for transformative education and an incubator for community collaboration on appropriate, affordable and sustainable alternatives.
The Green Hub project is recognised with an Honourable Mention in the 2016 UNESCO Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation in 2016. The Green Hub also receive the Grand Award (Existing Buildings Category: Completed Projects – Institutional Building) and Special Citation in Eco-service Infrastructure Network under the Green Building Award 2016 that is jointly organised by the Hong Kong Green Building Council and the Professional Green Building Council.
