Nestled in busy Jordan, Kowloon Union Church offers a relaxed oasis in the form of its café, KUC Space. Well, to be exact, KUC Space is less of a café and more of a space where the public can rest free of charge. Vegetarian and vegan lunch sets were once served there, but now KUC Space has ceased all offerings of food. However, anybody is still welcome to use the space to eat their own food or to settle down with a good book.
For me, the lure of KUC Space was the interior architecture. The resting space is snow white in colour and decked with large windows that filters in daylight. Ornamentation is kept at a minimum. In fact, it has such a comforting and classic look, that, when combined with the serene music playing in the background, is sure to send anyone to dreamland.
KUC Space is split into two parts; the seating by the window, and the seating inside. The unpictured inner area is generally more comfortable as there are sofas and couches all over, and the tables are bigger too, to host large groups.
Inside, there are paintings on the wall of old Hong Kong – we’re talking dentists holding deathly sharp knives while wrangling their patients on a little stool. And barbers doing the same. And for some reason, I’m freaked out by them. But otherwise, KUC Space really is lovely and great for resting, either alone or with a group of friends.
Besides the creepy paintings in the inner areas, the interior really is beautiful and well thought out. If you’re more into minimal and classic designs, KUC Space is not a spot to miss. I love that Kowloon Union Church offers a space where visitors can bring their own food, though I’m disappointed I didn’t go when meals were still served. Either way, I’m sure you won’t be let down by this little religious oasis. And guess what. You can finally tell your mother you went to church!
