Happy in Happy Valley

A dark and dingy 3 bedroom apartment in Hong Kong's Happy Valley has been completely reworked and revived by architectural firm Lim + Lu. The idea was to explore the multi-use of spaces through a series and glass and black steel sliding doors. Rooms could expand and contract, be open or intimate all dependent on how the owners wished to use the space. Colour and pattern not only add a vibrancy and freshness to the apartment but also help delineate core living spaces from the extensions.

Stalking 1

I can't believe how light, how airy this apartment is. Love the old industrial windows, the furniture, that piece of art hanging above the lovely white dining setting, the curves. The whole thing is a hip "cross between art gallery, industrial space, and home". Add the fact that it's in my fav inner-city Sydney suburb of Redfern and sometimes real estate stalking makes me very, very jealous. Link here while it lasts.

The Bunker

If a concrete home leaves us cold we'll often describe it disparagingly as a bunker. So what happens when that concrete home is actually a bunker? If it's this penthouse apartment atop a WWII above ground bunker in Hamburg, Germany what could have been sterile and oppressive is instead raw, warm and sophisticated. The loft-style space has four metre floor-to-ceiling windows, is filled with contemporary designer pieces and has two big balconies offering amazing views over the city. What makes this beautiful apartment even more exciting is that it is part of the luxury vacation accommodation offered through Welcome Beyond. It's available from March 2017. In the meantime we can daydream of a getaway to help us through the Friday grind.

Brazilian jungle

Sorry that should read "apartment" not "jungle". What is it about Brazilian design that brings a smile to my face? The honesty, the simplicity, the sense of everyday style, the joy? I think I would feel right at home here and the abundance of indoor plants is only just a part of the reason. Love the deconstruction, the mix of iconic design pieces and the found, the wonderful light. Apartment renovation in São Paulo by RSRG Arquitetos.
