After playing home to two previous generations, the third generation homeowners of this 1000 square metre house decided to commission a complete renovation. The house is situated on a private owned hill in New Territories area, Hong Kong. PplusP Designers were asked to transform the place by introducing simple luxury elegance, splashed with modern oriental elements. The living room has been given new stature with a double height void, which measures a lofty 7 metres high. Unique works of art shape and colour the new impressive room. Wood slatted walls and gold decor accent pieces pepper the entire home. Bedrooms and bathrooms have been remodelled into luxury spaces with unique furnishings and high end finishes.
