Chris Lam from Zip Interiors has given a one-bedroom apartment in Sha Tin a new lease on life

The 270 sq-ft apartment in Garden Rivera, was transformed into a stylish, modern studio flat in black and white. All walls were torn down, and an airy home was created for the young owners and their puppy.

Throughout the entrance corridor, black mirrors hang amid a memory wall for the couple. The black mirrors extend to the bright open kitchen, whilst the extruded wall and irregular marble bar table energise the room. A passage to the bathroom is especially designed for the puppy and well hidden under the bar table. The bathroom itself includes clean lines with industrial pendants and raw patterned tiles on the walls and floor to contrast the living room.

To align the bed with the window bay, the bedroom area is raised with wooden platform and provides free space and additional storage for the home. A large hidden cabinet features a white sliding door that can be used as a screen for the projector above the bed on the opposite side, projecting movies, sport or the hit-the-trend moon clock as the couple wishes. The space between the bed and the hidden cabinet is adorned with a rug and cushions, in addition to the tailor-made bay sofa near the kitchen, for friends or the couple to enjoy the amazing river view.
