A sense of cohesion has been achieved through thoughtful design, resulting in a home which is the ideal place to relax after a long day. Here, the cosy, neutral palette is juxtaposed against darker surfaces, creating a sophisticated yet warm and welcoming space.
In an unconventionally laid-out home in which two bedrooms are accessible directly from the main living room, concealed doors have been deliberately designed to be indiscernible from the rest of the walls and decor. At one end, balcony doors open up to spectacular views of Victoria Harbour, allowing natural light to diffuse directly to the opposite end of the space, where a glass-walled study room has been sited for maximum visual transparency.
The neutral colour scheme of cool creams, soft browns and warm beiges extends into the bedrooms and kitchen. Here, the grain of wooden cabinetry adds texture and visual appeal, blending perfectly with the minimalistic ethos. Meanwhile, the effect of pale-coloured walls and ceiling is to disperse light and create a sense of spaciousness that is especially important in Hong Kong’s housing landscape.

This spacious property, set in monochrome hues is the perfect retreat for the owners to spend their retirement in style.
Conveniently located in Happy Valley, the property was formerly two flats but now transformed into one spacious space consisting of a formal living dining area, a family room, two bedrooms and a kitchen.
The luxurious master bedroom is perfect for relaxing and admiring the sweeping views of lush, verdant hills, Happy Valley and the city beyond. As with the rest of the property, the suite feels light and airy. It consists of a study and a commodious bathroom but rather than closing each sub-section with walls, glass panels were used to maintain the feel of openness, and to allow light to travel to all areas of the suite.
This flawless monochrome apartment is an oasis of calm and tranquility in the midst of a bustling city.
A revitalization project to convert an old industrial building to a commercial office building. This is a challenging site with no natural light, numerous beams and a very low ceiling.
Light troughs are evenly distributed throughout the ceiling and extending to the surrounding space to conceal the numerous ceiling and floor beams with a concept of sustainability and continuity.
The location of the reception area is carefully designed to surround the existing square column to make it feel like a whole tailor made unit.
As the ceiling heights are low, we used a number of design features to create an illusion of height. e.g., we lowered the reception counter tops and used wooden stripes to lengthen the look of the walls. Varying the width of the coloured glass wall resonate the theme of lines and functions to hide the service doors. Mirror used at ceiling making the ceiling visually higher.
The origins layout of this Duplex was composed by lots of bedrooms to serve as accommodation for employees of a company, the layout made the duplex feel dingy and dark.
We reconfigured the space into a large open-plan with living & dining room, kitchen with an open-tread steel staircase to penetrate more natural light to the Foyer.
Master bedroom Is located on the upper level where the master bathroom had been relocated next to the big window. A tailor-made basin with glass partition separates the bath tub area to maximize the light into the closet area.
Functional items have vanished: lacquered cabinet doors were painted in wall colors. Giving a feeling of paneled walls but not an apartment with full of cabinets surrounding.
The use of natural cement floor, grey walls, indirect lighting work together to create an oasis of calmness, a tranquil retreat away from the busy city life.

The walnut feature wall at the entrance was Inspired by Siemens seamless built-in electric appliances, the different sizes of the service doors along the entrance wall were hidden by the varying widths of the walnut wood floor boards. This walnut floor boards walls also link up the five distinctive areas, create a warm texture feature wall, making a big contrast of the cement floor
