bean buro refurbishes a 149-sqm apartment in the pok fu lam area of hong kong, whose layout composition takes its cues from a nearby waterfall. two juxtaposed elements form the two halfs of the apartment starting with a curvy blue volume that acts as a bookshelf with random niches. the second element is a rectilinear grey concrete volume that forms the other half of the apartment; it begins from the entrance and forms the backdrop of the dinning area, continuing towards the master bedroom while concealing a guest shower room, a walk-in storage, and a study room.

the flowing volumes reference the flowing water of the waterfall and the topography of natural rocks

 

 

 

designed for a young family with two children, the apartment allows the deepest spaces to be fluidly connected to the entrance and kitchen, forming a sociable open atmosphere for the family. in order to create privacy for the parents, bean buro created a concealed pocket sliding door with soundproof qualities, which can be pulled out from the concrete volume to divide the master bedroom suite and study room from the rest of the apartment. to further increase privacy for the study room, an additional sliding door is designed to separate the study room from the master bedroom.

the overall floor finish is a ceramic tile with a wooden texture, which is durable and provides visual warmth to the space. in the childrens’ room and guest/baby room, a writable surface is created on one wall, using a high quality chalk board laminate that can be composed into different wall patterns and colors. the study room also features magnetic, writable surfaces onto its white walls while offering high density storage for books and filings.
