Perched on Stone Nullah Lane, Wan Chai, the Blue House is a 4-storey pre-war shophouse built in the 1920s. With a spacious balcony, upper floors of the building were used as living quarters and the ground floor for commercial use.
During the renovation works carried out by the Government in the 1990s, the external walls of the building were painted blue - thus, the Blue House was born. The Blue House Cluster (BHC), comprising the Blue House and other 2 tenement buildings nearby, won the Award of Excellence of the UNESCO Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation in 2017. The award affirms the “Retain House and Tenant” concept of the revitalisation.
After the revitalisation, BHC retains their original residential purpose housing the old and new tenants, and offers various community and cultural activities such as workshops and guided tours in “House of Stories” to foster community interaction.
The Blue House was rated Grade 1 historic building in 2009.
