Hong Kong-based firm Bella Design has completed a renovation for a three-bedroom home on Hong Kong Island

Originally, the space was covered in dim colours with wooden floors and furniture adding to the dark feeling of the interior. Now, the home looks bright and contemporary, a welcome transformation to the 800 sq-ft condominium.

One of the design challenges of this space was the lack of natural lighting. The only direct access to the outside from the living room was through the balcony sunroom, which was fully surrounded by outdated windows that brought minimal light into the space. To solve this problem, the balcony sliding doors were removed and the sunroom became a part of the interior space, extending the living room. The outdated windows were replaced by a large floor to ceiling window, which brought an abundance amount of light indoors.

A highlight of the space is the open floor plan. The homeowners wanted the kitchen to be open and to become an integral part of the home, allowing friends and family to interact and converse with each other. By knocking down walls, natural lighting from the living room now enters the kitchen.

The main color used in this space is white, with light materials making the space look visually larger and brighter. On the floors, linear wood grain tiles are used. Since the space is small, mirrors and glass are placed thoughtfully to create the illusion of an even larger space.
