The objective was to re-design three bedrooms & bathroom into a vast Japanese inspired master room with en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet area. A serene retreat for the owner when he returns to Hong Kong from abroad.
Like a cocoon, all the walls, floors and cabinetry is clad in oak wood. Oak wood panels conceal cabinet doors, not only does this maximise storage but it is in harmony with the clean lines of the room. There are concealed full height storage cabinets next to one side of the TV. The other side of the TV is balanced with the same oak wood panels to conceal a column. Other luxuries also include a concealed fridge and a bar top next to the entrance door.
The sleeping area has been elevated by a delicately illuminated platform, with a low Japanese inspired bed with a desk behind. At the back, there is an integrated minimalist feature shelf wall with concealed full height storage at both sides.
On the wall between the two windows, there is a wallpaper panel which is not only decorative but functions as access to the air-conditioning condenser. This clever use of wallpaper as concealment is also repeated in the area above the TV, which is actually more storage space.
The bathroom is separated by sliding shoji paper doors, naturally installed in double for balance. Due to the raised platform, the bedroom flows seamlessly into the bathroom, which also heightens the sunken bath. The colour scheme welcomes a dramatic change from light & warm to monochrome shades of dark grey in granite stone. The zen like bathroom leads to a luxury dressing area in warm tones and materials mirroring the simplicity and clean lines of the main bedroom.
