Gentle Evening in the Typhoon Shelter

Typhoon shelters are a refuge for boats and small ships from severe storms.  The surrounding hillsides shield small craft from the direct impact of gale force winds, while the partially enclosed harbour and manmade breakwaters protect them from storm surge waves driven in from the sea.

As a home, the typhoon shelter can also be a peaceful refuge from the frantic pace of crowded modern Hong Kong.
