Shek Kip Mei Estate (石硤尾邨) is the first public housing estate in Hong Kong. It is located in Sham Shui Po in Kowloon. The one here should be built between 1977 and 1984. No matter how many redevelopements there are, the same location is still for the construction of public housing estate, from 1953 to the present. The story of constucting the first public housing will not be mentioned again here, it can be searched in the internet and in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shek_Kip_Mei_Estate. What is recorded here is to highlight the layout, appearance, shape and colour of those "I" and "L" shaped blocks.


Each unit is in the form of a box, with balcony and door on both ends respectively. This means no window is available for bedrooms, dining room and living room.


Block 22 is a 12-storey building.


Basically, there is no unnecessary design and decoration in the block.


Tenants can air their clothes outside their units.




For some blocks, at 29 years after construction (in 2013), they still looks firm. At least we can see no supporting metal frames outside the block.





Quite a lot of children are still studying in this estate nursery.


This pattern is peculiar to public housing estate in Hong Kong. I guess this can recall the memory of some people, they should have either lived here before or passed by regularly before.


As other records of public housing estate posted before, it is mainly to record the old construction of Hong Kong, for fear that some will be demolished suddenly one day. It is not easy or it is difficult to keep a tangible thing forever, but before it may have the risk and chance to disappear, we make a record for retrospect.
