2 Bedroom Apartment / 260 sqm / 2018
This fourth-floor apartment – located within a 1960s residential block along Repulse Bay Road, on the north side of Hong Kong – takes full advantage of its cliffside perch and unobstructed views of the sea and the mountains. The original four bedrooms were reconfigured into an open-planned one-and-a-half bedroom residence. Bracketed by thick walls, a series of spaces opens out along a long circular passage, each with a distinctive character, whether a bench, or even narrow slits that double as connecting passage ways to other parts of the apartment. Unusually, all the joinery work was built in France and Australia, and then seamlessly assembled on-site.
