【設計是一種國際語言】

已更新:1月31日


「唐樓」是香港獨有的特色建築,它們細說出香港從漁港發展到國際都會的故事。很多來自世界各地的人因為不同原因移居到香港長期或短期居住,打造一個能夠吸引跨國籍、文法、背景客人眼光的單位十分重要。利用這個年代盛行的元素而產生的現代風,配合簡約格調的設計方向是一個非常合適的選擇。


[Interior Design Is An International Language】

'Tang Lau' is Hong Kong's unique building style and have seen Hong Kong’s transition from a small 'fishing pot' to an internationally recognised city. Hong Kong is an international hub with many people from around the world. They come for short or long stay with many different reasons. Building a home that adheres to a multitude of different nationality, culture and backgrounds is very important. Utilising modern and minimalist is one of the preferred choices for the international market.



中上環一帶有很多唐樓特別受外國租客喜歡,因為它們帶領異國人認識真正的香港。這次的設計單位鄰近PMQ,擁有超過50年的樓齡。業主找我們幫忙為他放租的單位翻新改造。


In Central and western districts of Hong Kong Island, there are many 'Tang Lau' which are favoured by foreigner tenants because they help these foreigners experience an authentic Hong Kong. Our project this time is helping an owner to renovate his rental apartment located in an over 50 years old Tang Lau near the PMQ area.



由於單位樓齡相當高,進行翻新前必須把基本結構重新整理。處理手法上,唐樓和一般新或半新樓宇需要考慮的地方很不一樣。有一定年齡的樓宇,天花和鋼筋相對脆弱,不適合大型的鑽爆工程,牆身也不能隨便拆掉。所以,設計師決定維持結構間格不變。但是,沒有改變不代表不能改變。我們把原本位於門口右邊、沒有乾濕分隔的浴室和一個窄小的廚房,改成一個獨立洗手間和一個浴室加洗衣房,打造成酒店式公寓的格調。繞過浴室廁所,向左看是以一字排開呈現的開放式廚房。靠左一字型排列的櫥櫃讓視野可以直望整個客廳,陽台的光可以毫無阻擋地照亮整個生活空間,視野變得更開揚。


We planned to change the whole setting completely. But, this building is quite old and fragile, making them not suitable for heavy renovations. So, our designers decided to keep the original setting without tearing down any walls. No change doesn’t mean cannot change. To give a completely new look to the place, the designers decided to create a grand service apartment style. We change the small kitchen next to the toilet into a bathroom and laundry area. On the other hand, moving the kitchen to the living room and making it into open setting with a sleek design, allowing light to reach the whole living area.





整個設計的用色以素雅為主,地下鋪上自然柔和的胡桃木色地板,純白的牆壁,搭配上以幼細黑框做點綴的白色灰色入牆定制櫥櫃,整個空間簡約又實用。素色的基調設計容許租客自由地根據自己的喜好、文化、風格,加入不同格調的傢俱和裝飾,卻不會顯得雜亂無章,又能夠融納不同的主題,最適合香港國際都會裡面來自世界各地的多元文化租客,讓她們可以在異地再次建立一個有歸屬感的家。外面雖然是歷史痕跡斑斑的陳舊樓宇,裡面卻是充滿現代感的居住空間,在感受香港的同時,也能身處在一個熟悉的空間,新與舊的結合產新的化學作用讓設計打破固有的界線走得更遠更國際化。


The theme colour for this design is focused on natural and light tone. For the floor, we use a natural, soft walnut colour, matching with soft white walls. Built-in furniture, such as the kitchen cabinets, we use white and light grey with black frame as an accent. The whole area is minimalist with an open plan. The basic colours allow the tenant to bring in different styles of furniture or items that represent them or their culture. Any theme can fit within the frame easily. This kind of style is suitable for any tenants from around the world. They can experience the history of Hong Kong by living within a 'Tang Lau' but at the same time allowing them to have a piece of home in a foreign country.


設計原本就是一個沒有國籍地域限制的一種「語言」,不論你說那種語言,在這個空間裡都會找到和你共鳴的小天地。


Interior design is a creative industry. We try not to let boundaries get in the way of providing the best design for you. You can say that interior design is akin to an international language that can overcome nationalities and cultural differences. No matter which language you speak, interior design can be understood by all.
