Bean Buro designed an innovative apartment, at the Baguio Villa Pokfulam of Hong Kong, for a young family of four. The parents previously lived in a smaller apartment with a young child in the busier mid-levels district of Hong Kong, and wanted to relocate to a quieter villa community that is close to the ocean for the expanding family with a second child arriving. The new apartment faces the ocean on one side, and a mountain on the other. The new apartment would cater to the parents’ lifestyles whom are young professionals working in the city but would like to spend as much time at home as possible with their young children, and enjoy daily routine exercise such as yoga and bodyweight training. The apartment would need to be tough and durable as a playground for the children, and future proof for the changing needs as they grow up. At the same time, the aesthetics of the overall apartment would remain tasteful and elegant for the parents, whom may sometimes receive guests to their apartment.
