Not sure if this will be my first and last post about a refuse collection point… but the one in Star Street is quite eye-catching. It is definitely not your usual refuse collection building. It might have been in the past, but not since the Swire Group worked with a group of teenagers to create something different. They painted the exterior wall of the building in black, white and blue.
The pattern is loosely based on the famous Dutch painter Piet Mondrian who is known for his modern abstract paintings. In his paintings, he uses the simplest combinations of straight lines, right angles, primary colours, and black and white – and the exterior wall of this refuse collection point mimics this.

When I saw your first picture, I thought immediately of Mondriaan. You recognize his style right away. How cool that they took inspiration from his work!
