The talented team behind the online publication HNWorth conducted a candid interview with Robert earlier this year, capturing so accurately the beliefs and interests that have been the driving force behind Brewin Design Office these past 8 years.
“For Robert Cheng, dream projects tend to be the ones that allow him to ‘operate “end to end”, and to design the interior architecture, right through to selecting artworks and creating bespoke furniture pieces for the project. His latest work – the 20th-storey suite in the new 20-unit EDEN condominium designed by Thomas Heatherwick – fits the bill precisely.
Heatherwick’s work on Eden is unique for its sensitivity to nature and its quiet references to traditional colonial typologies. ‘It was important for us to create an interior that complimented his detailing but without replicating his language, ’ says Cheng.
