New World Group has recently unveiled its latest artisanal serviced apartments, 8 Kwai Fong, in Happy Valley, Hong Kong

Sitting on a peaceful lane surrounded by gardens in Happy Valley, 8 Kwai Fong represents the core of the artisan spirit. Created to give guests a bespoke environment while away from home, the serviced apartments draw on architectural aesthetics from around the world and incorporate a bespoke range of collectibles and art pieces from across the globe, each chosen because of their unique, individual story. With a concept by the firm’s executive vice-chairman and joint general manager, Adrian Cheng (also the founder of the K11 Art Foundation), New World Group has collaborated with a host of designers and artists to create a new type of temporary accommodation for the Hong Kong market.

Incorporating the layout and style of a mansion, the apartments include a hobby room, collectibles room, a lounge and a dining room, giving guests space to entertain, relax and socialise outside the confines of their apartments. Features such as a retro-style record player designed by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, and unique handcrafted vases created by Julie Progin and Jesse Mclin are added to the interior spaces, creating points of interest and inspiration for guests and visitors alike. High ceilings, a rarity for Hong Kong, add to the air of elegance inside the space.

Guests can choose to cook for their visitors in the fully equipped kitchen or employ a chef to help out

Offering both studio and one-bedroom apartments, 8 Kwai Fong’s bespoke interiors continue into the guest’s apartments, with European bathroom and kitchen fittings being showcased alongside elegant soft furnishings. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow sweeping views of the surrounding gardens, and each room is equipped with a balcony to add an indoor/outdoor flow. Iconic, timeless furniture and design has been incorporated into the project, creating an air of relaxed refinement in the complex – a true home away from home.
