K11 MUSEA的命名来自“A Muse by the Sea”的商业概念, 希望透过商业与艺术的结合，鼓励人们置身其中发现属于自己的灵感缪斯，把丰富的文化内容带到尖沙咀海滨。取自轻波作浪的概念，K11 MUSEA的建筑呈波浪型，丰富的动感呼应了其滨水的位置关系，退台的设置创造出各式的户外露台供访客休闲娱乐。外墙糅合了玻璃，石材及绿意外墙，其中内部及外部绿意外墙总面积超过50,000平方英尺，为世界上最大的绿意外墙。与此同时，MUSEA的另一个建筑亮点是占地2000平方英尺的水帘舞台，具备特色灯光设备及环绕式水幕，为文化体验计划KULTURE11的众多文化活动提供了一个理想的场地。

K11 MUSEA – a name inspired by A Muse by the Sea for its retail concepts – is set to reinvigorate the Tsim Sha Tsui harbour front with robust cultural content, inspiring visitors discover their own muse. K11 MUSEA’s façade draws inspiration from Hong Kong’s iconic harbour with a design that is fluid, vibrant and naturally inviting. Crafted from Portuguese limestone, glass and green wall, the façade is stepped to form an active hill of green terraces facing Kowloon and Victoria Harbour. Its façade will feature one of the world’s largest living walls, boasting a total surface area of over 50,000 square feet of greenery inclusive of the interior and exterior. Meanwhile, a one-of-a-kind outdoor amphitheater space and a large 25-foot-tall LED screen will also be in place for a slew of cultural happenings.
