Designed by emerging architecture and interiors practice Hong Kong-based Bean Buro, Disappearing Corridor is a home with child-friendliness and play in mind

Led by Lorène Faure and Kenny Kinugasa-Tsui, Bean Buro has recently completed the interiors for this 138 sq-m home for a family of four in Hong Kong. Named Disappearing Corridor, the firm kept children in mind when designing the project, encouraging them to explore the space through play.


A long slithering wooden wall connects living area and kitchen together, while providing plenty of concealed storage spaces, appliances and display niches. As a result, the rooms are open, airy and light with a large feature bookshelf that appears to be floating.


Conceived with large wooden sliding doors, the children's bedrooms can be fully opened onto the corridor with quirky handles, creating a large shared room for play. A series of glass interstices allow for playful peeking into the living spaces, while wall niches make for great hiding spots.
