Hong Kong is a land-scarce colony, where most apartments are designed to be functionally small. This former three-bedroom condo unit is no different, and the owners, both from the creative industry, yearned for a modern yet timeless space where they can pause and rejuvenate after a busy work day.

According to Roystern Goh, design principal of Singapore-based firm 0932 Design Consultants, who helmed the total revamp of this apartment, “The project brief was mainly to enhance and design a simple artful space with a blend of modern oriental style,” he says.

Taking advantage of its hilly location, the team’s vision was to make this home “at once a tranquil art gallery and a comfortable residence; [with] white walls as a simple canvas that bears the quiet sophistication of hovering sculptures and framed compositions of brushstrokes and purposeful blots.”

The team’s effort paid off, as this home won the Gold for Best Apartment Under 2,000 square feet category for Asia Pacific in the recent Interior Design Excellence Awards (I-DEA) 2016, the annual event organized by Interior Design Confederation Singapore (IDCS).

Originally, the unit was separated into smaller rooms, with a low ceiling height mainly due to the concealment of structural beams that run across the unit. The existing configuration also did not capture the beauty of the natural landscape and skyline, says Goh.
