After I visited the Kowloon Cricket Club this week, I did a little research on the building (which is listed).  Located at 10 Cox's Road in TST, the

 building was constructed in 1932 and designed by the architectural firm of Raven & Basto (1922-1937) in the Moderne/Art Deco style.  Althought the clubhouse has been majorly altered since 1932, it remains an interesting building. The clubhouse is situated at the northest corner of the cricket course and was originally L-shaped or butterfly-shaped in plan, and the elevation facing the cricket field featured a long horizontal verandah (originally open) below a second story with a gambrel roof (originally tiled) with a small central gable with with a clock facing the fields.  The Cox's Road elevation was symmetrical with narrow and elongated punched window openings, a stepped parapet roof with a grooved stucco finish and a projecting canopy over the front door.
