Kowloon Station in Hong Kong
Kowloon Station is a rail transit station on the Tung Chung Line and the Airport Express of Hong Kong's MTR. The station provides in-town check-in service for passengers departing from the Hong Kong International Airport, with access to shuttle, bus, train, and other forms of transit.
This station in the Kowloon development in Hong Kong was designed by Farrells (TPP Farrells). The project included a masterplan for the surrounding Union Square, one of the largest air-rights developments in the world. This development included the tallest tower in Hong Kong, the International Commerce Center.
Zahner was brought into the project to provide above-ground exterior metalwork, as well as below-grade metalwork for the station's interior. This scope includes a Zahner-manufactured aluminum facade, with aluminum and stainless steel interior metalwork. The station was completed in 1998.
Tsing Yi Station
Tsing Yi Terminal is an intermodal center and train station on the Tung Chung Line of MTR and Airport Express, located on Tsing Yi Island in Hong Kong. Designed by Wong Tung, the building features the largest copper roof in Hong Kong. Zahner manufactured the copper standing seam roof system with built-in gutters and associated flashing and fascia. The roof panels were installed as a pre-patinated copper. This means that the copper material went through a patination process in the United States, where it developed an advanced patina, a protective layer resulting from a built-up oxide on the copper surface. Zahner provided advanced metalwork for the project. The roof edge folds over to create a clean, trimless appearance. A running bond pattern was designed for the double-lock standing seam. The project is one of a number works that Zahner has produced in Asia.The project is located between Airport Station and Kowloon Station, another Hong Kong work of architecture featuring Zahner metalwork.
