DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Flexible 3D Space

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Design Office

INSPIRATION:
Dwellings in Hong Kong don’t offer a lot of space for residents, especially those with a family. In order to make full use of the limited resources, we looked at using space that most people wouldn’t consider. By evaluating the height of the unit and maintaining reasonable livability for the end-users, a second level was developed which increased the amount of living space by more than half. Latitudinal and longitudinal lines across the walls and furnish were employed as well, in order to enhance the overall presentation.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A majority of furniture in the living space is ‘loose’, meaning they are easy to move around. The aim of using such furnishes is to give the residents the option of opening up the room for more free space. Every inch within the unit is used to its fullest potentials. A sitting area within the walls is located right next to the entrance, which can act as a place for people to rest or for extra storage space. Also within one of the walls is a work table that can be pulled out for use or remain hidden when conserving space. Leading residents up towards the second level is a recessed handrail and floating staircase. Both elements are designed to serve their purpose yet at the same time create a sense of spaciousness.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
From the moment someone steps into the unit, they’ll see and feel the broadness the room provides. The various pieces of furniture around the unit can interact with one another as they can be pushed, pulled or moved aside. The lines seen throughout the space act as a guide that leads to the second level, which provides an open view of the whole room.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project finished in Sep 2015 in Hong Kong

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Main materials used are plastic laminated wooden flooring, artificial stone and stainless steel. White, grey and yellow colors are used to create a warm ambience.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Total area: 470 sq ft

TAGS:
Home, interior design, spacious, residence

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
As the unit provides a lot of vertical space, we looked at how much room a normal person needs and then decided where to cut the room and create the second level. We also discussed with the people who will live in the unit to decide how we would dissect the space and determine where the furniture should be placed.

CHALLENGE:
The owners wanted a space that fulfills the role of being a home and a workplace. In order to create such a space, we placed any furnish that fulfills only one role into a location that is out of sight when the room is performing the other role. The bed is on the second level, unseen by guests from the ground floor. The work table can be tucked away inside a wall, when not in use. The challenge of the design is to determine the location of each piece of furniture and how to avoid conflict with its surroundings.

Artwill is a residential and commercial interior design firm from Hong Kong established in 2002. They are known for their modern and minimalistic styles anchored on a well-planned spatial design. Their design philosophy is anchored around a user-centric methodology – they prefer to involve owners as much as possible during the design process, but can drive the design forward and take care of all finer details if the owners’ schedules do not allow the needed level of time commitment. Walking into an Artwill interiors, it is obvious with the placement of furnishings and dimensions that they are designing on a human scale, with ergonomics and comfort in mind. Signs of high quality craftsmanship also show through in the finishings and decorative touches. Artwill is led by Regina Kwok, an Australian-trained designer. Her attention to details distinguishes her from other designers; her love of cooking makes her kitchen designs particularly ergonomic. What has become her well-known signature is a wall graphic connecting the interiors to the outdoors, giving context to her every design.
