Entries in Asia (11)
Polish interior designer Lucyna Kołodziejska is back with yet another great project (see previous ones here). Her designs are typically contemporary/modern/mid-century but this time there's an Asian flair as her client spends alot of time in the Orient. A melange of styles, some beautiful rugs and my favourite lighting care of Tom Dixon make this a pretty awesome apartment.
A terrace house in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Stripped back to bare bones, renovated with steel and timber. A modern, minimalist home rising from the old shell. Spare and clean lined, relaxed, cool, calm. From it's ground floor TV den though open plan living and kitchen up to its zen like top floor chill out zone it is the perfect answer to tropical living in a hectic Asian capital. Design by Jessica Lim, Tony Heneberry and Jo England of JTJ Design, a KL based design and development company.
In Hong Kong, where space is at a premium, the OnebyNine studio architects took on the challenging brief to help design this 35 square meter apartment. Lukasz Wawrzenczyk and Ewa Koter, originally from Poland but now in Hong Kong, reworked the configuration, removed walls and created a more continuous space for living, sleeping and entertaining. As a quirky linking element, "Space Invaders" mosaics appear in several rooms. A small terrace with tropical plants is a perfect (and welcome) retreat from such a bustling, overcrowded city.
