Nestled in busy Jordan, Kowloon Union Church offers a relaxed oasis in the form of its café, KUC Space. Well, KUC Space isn’t exactly a café – it’s 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, everyone is welcomed to come up and use the space for themselves 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 classical look, that, when combined with the serene music playing in the background, is sure to send anyone to Dreamland.
KUC Space is painted white in the outer rooms by the sun. I personally like having the sunshine on me while I relax, so it’s by the window I go. The unpictured inner areas, though, are generally more comfortable as there are sofas and couches all over the place. The tables are bigger too to host larger groups.
Inside, there are paintings on the wall of old Hong Kong – we’re talking dentists holding really 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 chilling, 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 they still served meals. Either way, I’m sure you won’t be let down by this little religious oasis. And guess what. You can tell your mother you went to church!
