The ICI is the latest addition to the Hong Kong Vocational Training Council’s (VTC) Pokfulam campus.   As the first of its kind in Asia, ICI provides word-class culinary training for over 2,000 students covering European, Mediterranean, American, Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines. WSP was appointed by Lead Consultant, Leigh & Orange, as the Building Services consultant of this world-class facility.

Spanning 9 floors, including two basement levels, the 11,200 sq.m campus houses a comprehensive array of facilities including training kitchens, multi-tiered demonstration kitchens for international competitions and broadcasting, MICE training restaurants, food-related laboratories, themed culinary gardens, as well as a wine cellar. 

Inspired by the shape of a Salt Crystal the futuristic design of the building is an inspiration to both visitors and students alike.
