THE PROFESSIONAL AWARDS

1st PRIZE: MAGGIE MO & JAY LEUNG, STARZ PARSHA LTD.


Friends and business partners, Maggie and Jay, decided upon a design that would create a fresh and playful home sanctuary by using hues of green for the main colour scheme, bringing in an element of nature to contrast against Hong Kong’s ‘concrete jungle’.

“Due to the recent global pandemic, we wanted to create something which can associate with the vitality of nature and healthy living “ said Maggie & Jay. “With the wide range of colour choices which BoConcept provides, we were able to translate our natural concept into our design, hence providing the perfect balance between form and functionality.

Partition walls between the living room and bedroom are divided by a stoned TV wall and louvre partitions for maximum visibility and natural sunlight penetrating the interior space. The design style is rather minimalistic and material textures on walls are kept subtle in order to emphasize the organic elements in the interior space such as the lotus flower patterned walnut floor and the contrasting green velvet furniture from BoConcept.

REX WANG, HIRSCH BEDNER & ASSOCIATES LTD. (HBA)

“Home is a place without barriers” muses Rex. “The charm of Hong Kong lies in how it constantly attracts elite people from around the world. However, due to the global pandemic, social movements, and different political affiliation, loneliness has now manifested itself fully for those who have just relocated to Hong Kong”.

In order to combat the numerous intangible barriers outside, Rex decided it simply isn’t necessary to divide a 650 square feet home into even smaller utilitarian areas sectioned off by cold and rigid walls, resulting in her unique open plan design. This also helps to make the home a more inclusive space, where joy can be found from the overlap of various aspects of life. When walls meant to compartmentalize so-called functionalities of rooms create division, removing them can lead to a whole new level of openness for cohabitants.
 
“There is no rigidly divided space except for the areas requiring high privacy (such as toilets and shower). Semi-opaque curtains, half-height walls, translucent glass, and continuous columns are the elements used to create spaces. In this era of loneliness, I care to create an intimate yet flexible living experience for those elites who live alone and for those couples who want to pursue a more intimate relationship” Rex Wang, HBA.

DAVID HOGGARD, PDP LONDON ARCHITECTS

Before embarking on their design, the PDP team first asked themselves the question “what does home mean to us?” They reached the conclusion that a good home goes far beyond its four walls; it is able to draw out boundaries of spaces associated with strong positive emotions.

“With the recent psychological and physical downturn we sought to design a space that uplifts the user and responds to the increasing demands for the typical home typology to be diversified- able to transition as per the user’s needs; between communal and private; social and retreat; inspiration and concentration; live and work” said David Hoggard of PDP London.

Adapting a two bedroom Hong Kong apartment by opening up the first bedroom space to the living room, dining room and open kitchen, PDP gave the extendable BoConcept dining table centre stage, by using it to bridge the circulation between each space. The typical Hong Kong bay windows are reinvented with BoConcept shelving to alleviate a lack of storage. The bedroom, with calming navy colour palette, is designed as a space for repose, intimacy and comfort.

Each space showcases the versatility, functionality and simplicity of the BoConcept line to its fullest potential, embodying the home sanctuary concept.
