The Lippo Centre's unusual design has earned it the nickname of ‘the Koala Building’. Once someone has pointed out the koalas to you, you can't un-see them.
Along with the Bank of China and HSBC, the Lippo Centre is one of Hong Kong’s most recognisable buildings and is one of the defining buildings on the Hong Kong skyline.
All three buildings were constructed in the 1980s. Architecturally, it was an important decade that would have a huge impact on the Hong Kong skyline.
The two unequal, octagonal Lippo towers, clad in dark reflective glass, are strangely eye-catching but by far the strangest feature are the C-shaped extrusions. These are the bits that look pretty much like a bunch of over-sized koalas doing what koalas do best - hanging out on gum trees all day.
It is a commercial building with offices and retail so it’s open to the public. Those with a keen interest in architecture might want to go inside but for most of us, it’s enough to see it from the outside as you’re passing.

Please correct and then remove this comment! It wasn't here when I was a boy in the 1950s. ;-)

Nice to spot out and take a picture of whilst exploring Hong Kong Central and its bank district. This twin towered building has a wonderful and unique shape.

Not as prominent as I think used to be due to the numerous high rise offices that continue to be built but the shape itself presents a unique architecture. Unfortunately it’s not open to the public but does present great photo opportunities.

These hard to miss twin office towers, completed in 1988, are meant to suggest koalas hugging trees. No coincidence as these towers were previously known as Bond Centre, after Perth-based beer magnate and America’s Cup winner Alan Bond. You will still find a reminder of this Aussie connection in the main hall, where two massive stone works by famous local artist Gerard d’A Henderson illustrate Sydney on one side, Hong Kong on the other. The building‘s common area is best accessed by the pathways on the Admiralty section of the Central Elevated Walkway.

Hong Kong has many skyscraper with unique design and this twin building has place in the top list. Interesting design of bump and waves, this building catch your eyes and one wants to immediately capture it keep it in their memory. An integral part of Hong Kong Symphony of light show this building has a special place in Hong Kong Skyline.

The Lippo Centre is a very interesting building to look at from up close. It is fun to imagine how the architects constructed its two towers, which seem to interweave when seen from different perspectives around the city. Interesting this building is sometimes referred to as the Koala tree (looks a bit like Koala's climbing trees).

You can view the Lippo Centre towers best from Hong Kong Park where there are completely unobstructed views of the towers. Also, its nice to see these towers up close, just outside the Admiralty MTR station on Queensway Road so you can gain better perspective for how the weave design is supposed to flow. You can also view it from across the Harbour in Kowloon. Unfortunately, its difficult to appreciate the building design from farther away, making the Lippo Centre less ideal to view from the TST Promenade.

We recommend trying to spot this building among other great skyscrapers when you are viewing the Hong Kong skyline from the Avenue of Stars. However, do try to make time to stop and look at the Lippo Centre when you are in Hong Kong Island, up close and personal. Its an interesting sight.

The twin towers of Lippo Center, Hong Kong headquarters for Lippo Group is in Admiralty area of the Island. The unusual shape of the buildings draws stares whenever people pass by. Not far from Pacific Place, the luxury mall you can get good viewing both day and night and passing by on the double decker trams. It stands in sharp contrast to the more square traditional skyscrapers in Hong Kong

This building is situated at Admiralty near the Central District. It is now called Lippo Centre, but it was originaly called the Bond Centre. I do not quite remember whether it was named after Alan Bond, and the stories behind. I recollect that there was once a bank located in this building and it was later closed down. I wonder why this building has such strange history and stories. I think this building looks different from many other buildings. Have a look at it and try to dig out more about it.

Twp office towers in Admiralty, Lippo Centre is special in its appearance. People who love taking photos may like to come and see what it looks like and use your imagination. Not much to see otherwise.
