About vA!

Laying the groundwork for homegrown artistic innovation

Located at the top of Hong Kong Park, the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre – vA! – is housed in Cassels Block, which was built in the first decade of the 20th century as an extension of the British Army's Victoria Barracks to provide married quarters for officers. The barracks were handed over to the government and incorporated in the Hong Kong Park project in 1985. A new wing with a glass canopy was added when Cassels Block was converted into vA!. The Centre was opened in 1992.

Constructed in a cascade down the hillside, the Grade I historic building originally comprised four three-storey quarters with a brick, limewashed façade and a triangular gable in an ancient Greek style between the blocks. The east and west sides featured open colonnaded verandas typical of the Edwardian Classical Revival style.
