An Urban Sanctuary With Space to Breathe
In this home inside a colonial-style apartment building in the Mid-Levels district on Hong Kong Island, “the serene feeling of discovering a quiet stream in a tranquil forest” was what the owners wanted to capture, according to Liquid Interiors founder Rowena Gonzales.
The designer and her team revamped the 1,800 sq ft, two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home. The living room leads to a beautifully decorated balcony via bi-folding doors, which, like the ceiling fan installed, offer natural cross-ventilation and allow the owners to be “very comfortable without having to open the air conditioning.”
Plenty of plants were placed here, as were furniture made of natural wood, which Gonzales ays gives the balcony a soft and comfortable feeling. While the balcony has views of greenery, it also faces a high-rise. This is why curtains made of bamboo were added above the frameless balcony glass, which offers privacy for the occupants, while also retaining the space’s nature-inspired aesthetic.
