Christie’s is pleased to announce that we will relocate our Asia Pacific headquarters in 2024 to The Henderson, a striking new urban landmark on Murray Road in Central, Hong Kong designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. With 50,000 square feet of art-inspired space anchoring four storeys within new tower, Christie’s will be able to provide exceptional service to clients with our first year-round saleroom and state-of-the-art gallery presence in Asia. Christie’s iconic new home in the luxury centre of the city is poised to become a worldwide destination for collectors, with a signature profile on the Hong Kong skyline.
This investment affirms Christie’s leadership in Asia and commitment to the region, further strengthening our capability to connect and better serve the rapidly growing number of Asian collectors through an unrivaled global network of salerooms and specialists. The decision not only underscores Christie’s confidence in Hong Kong as the preeminent art and culture hub in Asia, but also testifies to the strong resilience of the art market in the region and beyond.
The establishment of our first year-round saleroom and gallery space in Hong Kong will provide Christie’s with the long-needed flexibility to transform our sales and events schedule from two main seasons a year, to year-round programming, and to embrace opportunities for greater creativity and innovation. Designed to meet the unique business needs of an international auction house, the new galleries at The Henderson are ideal for our exhibitions of large-scale artworks, live auctions, private sales, and educational programs.
The Henderson’s unique and forward-looking design is itself a work of art, perfectly complementing the exquisite masterpieces that Christie’s offers across the globe.
Both Christie’s and Henderson Land Group share a common vision for the environment and a long-term commitment to sustainability. Christie’s is the first international auction house dedicated to a global sustainability initiative with a commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2030. The state-of-the-art sustainable design of the Henderson, which has received LEED Platinum and WELL Platinum pre-certification together with the highest 3-star rating of China’s Green Building Rating Program, supports Christie’s leadership in conducting business responsibly for the environment.
We look forward to beginning this momentous new chapter in Christie’s history with all of you, and engaging collectors together in Asia and beyond at The Henderson in 2024.
