Lui Seng Chun

Lui Seng Chun

Lui Seng Chun was designed and built by architect W.H. Bourne and completed in 1931. Now listed as a heritage site, the building is a good example of a tong lau, or Chinese shophouse, with features typical of the verandah-style of construction common before the Second World War. Typical of all tong laus at the time, the ground floor of the four-storey building was used for retail while the upper floors were used as dwellings.

In 2008, Hong Kong Baptist University, with financial assistance from the Government, revitalized the building and transformed it into the Hong Kong Baptist University School of Chinese Medicine – Lui Seng Chun. The building now includes a herbal tea shop on the ground floor as well as a display introducing the old Lui Seng Chun. The remainder of the building is dedicated to the practise of traditional Chinese medicine.

The ground floor is open to the public and free guided tours to other floors are available by registration. Please check the website for details.
