The Student Affairs Office is hosting a guided tour to the HKBU School of Chinese Medicine – Lui Seng Chun on 18 March 2014 (Tuesday). Hong Kong's tong lau buildings are as important architecturally as the hutongs (alleyways) and siheyuan (courtyard houses) of Beijing, and the shikumen (tenement housing) of Shanghai.
Since the 1960's a huge number of tong lau have been knocked down to make space for taller apartment and commercial buildings.
Wing Lee Street is the last remaining tong lau street in Hong Kong, lined with 12 typical Chinese-style tenement buildings dating back to the 1950s. One of Hong Kong's finest tong lau buildings, the Lui Seng Chun, is another success story. Currently being renovated, the Blue House is a four-storey tong lau housing cluster built in the 1920s with a mixture of Chinese and Western architectural features. Located in the historical district of Wanchai, Mingle By the Park is a 1960s tong lau building transformed into a hip boutique hotel. Fans of casual Japanese dining and barbecue unite at Woo Tung Yakiniku Dining Bar, situated in the heart of Starstreet Precinct on hilly St. The Pawn is four houses, one of which was the Woo Cheong Pawn Shop, the first such business in Hong Kong. The revitalization work was completed in early 2012 and the clinic, Hong Kong Baptist University School of Chinese Medicine – Lui Seng Chun, commenced operations in April 2012.


Bauhaus and Streamline Moderne architectural influences are evident in the clean, smooth lines of the facades. You can hardly walk down a street in Hong Kong today without coming across a building that is in some stage of demolition, and tong lau are suffering most from the wrecking ball. A growing number of  local architects are now looking to the past and to preserving Hong Kong’s architectural heritage, while restaurateurs, shop and hotel owners, and property buyers are all buying up tong lau and transforming them into hip new hangouts and homes. The street had been part of a redevelopment scheme, but following a public outcry earlier this year the street was excised from the plan and all 12 buildings are to be preserved. Many believe that the widespread critical acclaim that the movie received played a major part in persuading the Hong Kong government not to demolish the street's tong lau buildings. The building has been given a makeover and is now home to a traditional Chinese medicine clinic. The distinctive blue colour was not a deliberate aesthetic decision - the decorators only had blue paint, so a blue house it became.
Having kept most of the interior structure, the hotel is like a museum showcasing the history of Hong Kong. With residential flats on the top floors and shops on street level, they were once an answer to urban overcrowding. Only a handful of old buildings still remain, crouched between the skyscrapers, the residents pottering about their daily lives as if the 21st century didn't exist.


In the 1950s and 1960s, kung fu master Wong Fei-hung’s student Lam Sai-wing and his nephew launched their kung fu studio here. Open since January, Woo Tung is the latest baby by Toronto-trained chef and owner Jason Lai. The building now includes a herbal tea shop on the ground floor as well as a display introducing the old Lui Seng Chun.
Most interiors and rooms are also re-touched with Hong Kong 60s decor and vintage furniture pieces. He fell in love with the traditional tong lau at Starstreet Precinct -  particularly the ancient well in the back terrace - and decided that it was an ideal spot for a yakiniku, or bar with small grilled snacks.
The remainder of the building is dedicated to the practise of traditional Chinese medicine.
