Sitting atop the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, the 14-storey development will feature 287 residences with 70 different layouts for rent. Designed with cultural creatives in mind, these residences are a dream home come true. K11 ARTUS offers breathtaking views of Hong Kong's iconic skyline, unparalleled service, and state-of-the-art technology enabling residents to shop, play, work and eat with the greatest of ease.
“This is an artisanal home and a new living standard built for tomorrow's creatives who prioritise bespoke design, a seamless online-offline experience as well as art and cultural experiences that bring together like-minded individuals,” explained Cheng.
Glancing at initial interior images, it’s clear K11 ARTUS will be a highly coveted address come July. Residents will also be seamlessly connected to the building’s human-centred technology which offers an 24-hour intuitive digital concierge for nearly any need, including requests, advice, food delivery and access to the museum-retail complex, K11 MUSEA, for full-service luxury and convenience.
Additionally, K11 ARTUS sets out to be the forerunner in nurturing the community of creative leaders, cultural explorers and intellectuals through its in-house culture salons.
These year-long curated programmes will gather leading cultural figures, including playwrights, artists, designers, explorers and scholars, to share their insights and knowledge and evoke contemplation and discussion among participants in a variety of inspiring environments. The residences’ open spaces and remarkable balcony views will also be available for guests to host their own private salons.
Throughout the public areas in K11 ARTUS, residents and their guests can enjoy ancient Chinese artisanal objects, such as wooden furniture made using baibaoqian techniques (an ancient craft of inlaying engraved work with precious stones) and ceramics with guangcai, which is acolourful hand-painted porcelain that features both Chinese and Western elements.
These rare Chinese arts and crafts are produced in collaboration with the K11 Craft and Guild Foundation, a charity that preserves and conserves fast-disappearing Chinese craftsmanship dating back to the Ming and Ching Dynasties.

K11 ARTUS will contribute significantly to the Victoria Dockside ecosystem, which encompasses the K11 ATELIER, a new paradigm in workspaces, K11 MUSEA, a landmark for art, culture, dining and events, and of course Rosewood Hong Kong.
The residences wouldn’t be part of the K11 family without its unique attention to art and design. Cheng intentionally wove both design and art from Asia’s most celebrated designers into the development, including lush landscaping and greenery from Bangkok’s P Landscape (PLA) and specially designed penthouses by Hong Kong’s Joyce Wang, UK’s Fiona Barratt and New York’s nemaworkshop.
Cheng and his team of art curators also hand-selected pieces for all public areas within K11 ARTUS, incorporating beautiful calligraphy, ink paintings and artefacts from around the globe, paying homage to craftsmanship and serving to inspire all guests.
To celebrate arrival of the Lorraine Schwartz shop at K11 ARTUS, celebrities, musicians and creators alike flocked to the space during Hong Kong Art Week for a star-studded fete which included Pharrell Williams, Heidi Klum, Nicole Scherzinger, Jessica C, and more.
