Bean Buro was appointed to design a 1,000sqft apartment at The Harbourside, Kowloon Station, Hong Kong. The brief was to refurbish the existing tired apartment into a fresh, tidy, storage efficient apartment suitable for a young Swedish-Chinese city dweller with infrequent guests.
The design was inspired by a narrative exchange between European loft living and Asian functional flexibility. The lounge has a feature sculptural wooden wall that can fold and open up to the master bedroom, allowing maximum natural daylight from the bedroom’s window to filter through to the lounge. The aspiration is to create an open studio atmosphere to reflect the user’s contemporary life style, while allowing flexibility to partition the internal environment.
