British studio Weston Williamson has designed ‘kissing towers’ for Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour.

The three skyscrapers have been designed to be built on top of a new high-speed railway line, and look as if they ‘kiss’ each other.

The complex would feature a cluster of three tapered towers with heights that reach up to 440 metres.

The tapered profiles of the towers enable them to reach between the 21st and 25th floors.

"The Archology Tower would not be feasible without the high-speed rail link underneath the new towers."

Named Arcology Skyscraper, the design proclaims the importance of transport-focused architecture.

The Arcology Skyscraper complex will include offices, houses and retail shops.

The complex will be positioned directly above a high-speed rail line, which is an extension of the new Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link.

It is a new 88 mile long route that links Hong Kong to mainland China.

Weston Williamson was quoted by Dezeen as saying: "The Archology Tower would not be feasible without the high-speed rail link underneath the new towers."

The towers will be positioned in a way that they divide the complex into three zones, providing a total floorspace of 250,000m².

The upper levels will be used for residential purpose, while the lower levels will serve as commercial areas.

Weston Williamson added: "The form of the building is designed to generate the maximum high-quality floor space whilst responding to the unique intricacies of the central Hong Kong site.

"At ground level, the three towers form a large central square orientated to Victoria Harbour and an extensive park enhances to the wider urban realm, creating much needed green space along the central waterfront.

"As the building rises, each floorplate expands incrementally to provide deeper space allowing for greater flexibility in use."
