Working with a relocating family, this 7 bedroom home was designed with a highly sustainable angle in mind: To fully utilise the second hand market which, in 2023, was booming in Hong Kong.
With over 80% of items sourced second hand, online or in local Singaporean brocantes, this home created the perfect sanctuary for a Hong Kong family to comfortably plant new roots in a new city.
To transform public spaces into a formal lounge and dining room, existing art was collected from all areas to create a consistent story and artwork wall. Mirrors were placed higher to bounce light in dark areas and, a media lounge, set to the side, pulls in the yachting blue of the family.
Bedrooms are inspired by each and every child of the family, from energetic pinks to bright blues. The master bedroom, however, is a sanctuary of calm, using sage green to soften the colonial architecture and materials of the home.
Two studies were design to ensure optimal attention restoration, one of which also has a key focus on mental health, with the indoor bike carefully placed for optimal motivation and restoration.
Guest bedrooms feature key pieces from the family brought in from Italy, to welcome guests fully to a new city, but also into the family home.
