The Mei-Ho Building, located in The Stone End Estate in Kowloon, Hong Kong, was built in 1954 as the earliest and most fruitful six-storey "H"-shaped residential building in Hong Kong and was rated as a Grade II-2 historic building. The redevelopment of the old building in Ishiguro Village and the 41st US-Holland Building were retained at a cost of HK$220 million to transform into the YHA American-Dutch Building Youth Hostel and its American-Dutch Living Pavilion, which opened in December 2013.
The U.S.-Holland Living Pavilion features a number of barrier-free facilities, including lifts and easy access to toilets, designed to take into account the needs of wheelchair/mobility-impaired people. The local access design is quite spacious, most of the high and low uneven places have ramps, while the ramps are flat, wheelchair users can easily get up and down.
Although the Living Hall is a historical building, the barrier-free facilities are adequate, and special attention should be paid to the disabled or elderly who wish to visit the exhibition hall on the first floor, they may first contact the staff of the Living Pavilion to make arrangements.
