At the southern side of Hong Kong, architecture and interior design firm STUDIO ADJECTIVE has designed an apartment facing the Aberdeen Harbour with a beautiful mountain view. The design intention is to lengthen the horizontal experience and introducing a airy flow to the interior that merges with the surrounding scenery.

The clients, a couple, requested a calm and minimal atmosphere in the apartment. The interior is unified with white washed oak and a gradient of grey textures. A 9m long custom-made cabinet wall is introduced in the living area with charcoal grey metal detail, resting in front of a light grey striped backdrop. It acts as a major storage for the apartment and also as a physical connection from the entrance to the window. Part of the cabinet has transformed to a sitting bench next to the apartment’s harbour view. As the living area extends into the bedroom, a grey wall with a wooden ceiling is being the connection of the spaces. The grey wall consists of two sliding doors concealing the bathrooms and with an array of marble detail.
