Clifton Leung Design Workshop has recently completed the apartment design for a family of six in Mid-Levels, Hong Kong
Covering a space of 1350 sq-ft, the home is for a young family of six who initially requested the style of the interior to be classic. Founder of the practice Clifton Leung however suggested making the space more “modern classic” by reducing the level of detail and adding contemporary elements.
White bricks, white furniture subtly decorated with simple mouldings and pale oak floors were adopted throughout the three-bedroom, two bathroom apartment. The living and dining space was originally diamond-shaped, but Leung opted to modify the lay out by building a brick wall to square off the living room and turning the wedge-shaped area behind the wall into a study nook, creating a useful space from a formerly redundant corner.
The designer also created a second dining area by opening up the kitchen wall and replacing a countertop with overhead and under-counter cupboards. The kitchen is now partially opened, and a glass kitchen door and side panel saves space and brings natural light into the space.
For the he master suite, calm neutral tones have been used throughout and a large window offers views of the harbour. Facing the bed is the TV cabinet with sliding doors which allows the TV to be concealed, while the double wardrobe door also opens to a hidden marble bathroom, adding an extra feature to the room.
