Small Space Living | Simple and Breezy Apartments in Hong Kong (Part 2/2)

The second small space renovation project from Urban Design & Build is a 380 sqft loft walk-up.

It has 2 bedrooms in the original layout and the design brief was to transform the apartment into 2 individual suites. The larger one for the owner while the other suite will be rented out.

380 sqft is a not a large space to start of with. I think the designers have done a great job in carving out the 2 suites and still retaining the functionalities for each. Decor and styling is beautifully simple,  each of the suites exudes a serene and calming vibe that is much needed in any small living space.

Small Space Living | Simple and Breezy Apartments in Hong Kong (Part 1/2)

Remember the chic walk-up serviced apartment in the Hong Kong classic Tong Lau?

The folks at the Urban Design & Build have shared with me another 2 of their projects recently. Looking at the images, it is surprising to know that they are just merely below 200 sqft and 400 sqft each. We don’t usually associate “breezy interior” with small living spaces, but these 2 apartments demonstrate that with careful planning (and of course great taste and discipline to keep things minimal), you can still have that relaxing airy feel albeit the small square footage.

The first project is Studio M.

This 200 sqft studio apartment is designed for a single lady. The main living space has a Scandinavian color palette of white and grey. An interesting area rug ground the living room. I especially like design of the sliding door that partitions the sleeping area to give privacy, and still allowing flexibilities to open up the living space.

Located in the heart of CWB, it comes with a 180 sqft rooftop terrace. The lavender upholstery and the accessories used give a feminine touch to this space. This beautiful terrace will certainly make a great entertainment space for friends and family to gather.

Muji Style Home 無印良品 (Part 1/2)

Muji (Mujirushi Ryohin) 無印良品, is certainly no stranger to us. It is the “no-brand” brand that strives to deliver simple, functional and quality products to end-users. Its design style is distinguishably minimalistic. When put together, all work so well to create a stress-free space that exudes the understated Japanese aesthetic.

I have been wanted to do a post on interiors decorated with Muji furniture and household items, and finally decided on these 2 spaces to share with you.

The first one is a Muji showroom in Taiwan, result of collaboration with新家華建築團隊.

Muji Style Home 無印良品 (Part 2/2)

The 2nd apartment was a project done by Lee’s Design文儀設計.

It was a 50-year old house, refurbished in the Muji style as requested by the owner. There was no large built-in cabinetry, letting the loose furniture from Muji to take the centre stage of the apartment. The neutral colour palette is soothing, and everything is just so simple and beautiful.
