As an ex-architect, I have been following the news on the fate of this historic building in Hong Kong. I'm glad that one of the decendents of the original owner of the house is willing to buy the house back from other family members in order to preserve it.
Architecture is an art, but it is seldom appreciated in the same magnitude as other art forms, such as painting. For profit, many people are willing to destruct building with artistic value. You'll never see people buying a painting for the sake of destroying it. How sad architecture is often discriminated.
Is it because architecture is too often associated with commercial activities? I don't know. I think it is a question of the cultural quality of a city. I can never imagine such thing will happen in Paris or even Vancouver.
