Dramatic Green Marble in Mid-Levels

As avid dinner party hosts, the owners of this 2,410 sq ft apartment in the Mid-Levels district wanted to transform their home into a space that accommodates entertaining.

With the four-bedroom, three-bathroom apartment having previously undergone a full renovation, its owners were after a modern revamp of a home bar, entrance and balcony, as well as the bathrooms, says Ann Chan, the CEO of Hong Kong-based firm Hero Design Group, which spearheaded a partial redesign of the home.

The idea behind the revamp of the bathrooms of the home was to “transform them into jewel-box-like spaces with statement-making elements”, says Chan. “Bathroom spaces are more unique than people think, because they are one of the only areas in a home that nearly everyone—including guests—experiences, but not for a long time. This allows for the opportunity to make a really dramatic statement without the risk of overkill.”

Industrial Chic on Des Voeux Road West

In this 650 sq ft apartment on Des Voeux Road West in the Western District of Hong Kong Island, which comes with 370 sq ft private rooftop, Peggy Bels Interior Design changed the layout of the apartment entirely, demolishing everything to open up the space. 

In the bathroom, a surprising discovery was made during demolition: a brick wall was revealed. The owners of the home, Venus Cheung and Anthony Stewart, asked Bels to retain it and work on a design that would keep it visible.

The space, which Bels doubled in size, proved to be a challenging part of the revamp. Cheung had wanted a freestanding bathtub—it was difficult to find one that fits the tight space. A bathtub with a matte synthetic stone finish, as opposed to shiny acrylic, was also preferred. Bels and her team searched far and wide: “We considered shipping from Australia, or custom making the bathtub from scratch,” she remembers. In the end, she was able to source one from a factory in Shenzhen. This was one of the most memorable parts of the projects for the designer, and for the couple, it is their favourite room in the apartment.
