Disappearing Corridor Residential Apartment by Lorène Faure & Kenny Kinugasa-Tsui

Home > Winners > #54904


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Disappearing Corridor

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential Apartment

INSPIRATION:
A long slithering wooden wall connects living spaces and kitchen together, while providing plenty of concealed storages, appliances and display niches. The resulting spaces are open, airy and light with a large feature bookshelf that appears to be floating. Daylight and ocean views are extended by strategically positioned mirrors and glass partitions, anchoring the apartment in its beautiful surroundings.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Retreating from the hectic lifestyle of the city, the apartment entrance is a semi enclosed foyer which marks the threshold between inside and outside. Designed with a comfortable seat, playful hooks and concealed shoes and coat cabinet, it allows for a moment of pause and appreciation of the home.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The space was designed with children in mind, to encourage exploration of space though playing.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in October 2015 in Hong Kong and finished in May 2016 in Hong Kong.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
A long slithering wooden wall connects living spaces and kitchen together, while providing plenty of concealed storages, appliances and display niches. The resulting spaces are open, airy and light with a large feature bookshelf that appears to be floating. Daylight and ocean views are extended by strategically positioned mirrors and glass partitions, anchoring the apartment in its beautiful surroundings.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The parents space is also flexible, with a study corner that can be softly partitioned by curtains, without compromising space or ocean views. Tranquility and retreat are sought with a fresh material palette of wood and fabric. Storages are concealed, with featured niches for displaying art, keeping the space minimal and clutter free. The relaxed ensuite bathroom celebrates natural materials, translucent partitions and playful accessories.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research redefines a luxurious style that can be catered for both adults and children in mind, in a simple, calm and fresh manner.

CHALLENGE:
Conceived with large wooden sliding doors, the children bedrooms can be fully opened onto the corridor with quirky handles, creating a large shared room for play. A series of glass interstices allow for playful peeking into the living spaces, while wall niches make for great hiding spots.

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
Bean Buro

PROFILE:
The studio is an emerging architecture and interiors practice from London and Paris, led by Lorène Faure and Kenny Kinugasa-Tsui, with a team of international designers to provide architecture, interior, installation, furniture, product and masterplanning design services. The Hong Kong studio was opened in 2013. The diversity of the practice with its collaborators reinforces a core vision for the practice: to respond to the exchanges of global cultural narratives, incorporating overlapping design disciplines specializing in the social, economical and political production of urban spaces. We believe architecture is an emotional, spatial experience produced by both the user and the author. Our design methodologies stem from the observation, speculation and analysis of contextual narratives. These narratives, or ‘stories’, generate dynamic exchanges of historical, environmental, cultural and social factors, resulting in highly inventive interventions while preserving plenty of intellectual wit. COLLABean, as an integrated part of Bean Buro, is a trans-disciplinary platform for collaborations between practice, research and academia. COLLABean can provide design research services for business organisations, and wherever appropriate, to involve specialists’ input from a network of highly reputable designers, academicians and researchers in the design field. The practice has since produced a string of successful interior architecture projects for luxury residential clients as well as workplace designs for reputable companies such as Cheil, Leo Burnett, Warner Music, and has been awarded Silver Winner in the Asia Pacific Interior Design Award 2015, Runner Up in Architizer A+ Awards 2015, Gold, Silver & Bronze Winner in the A’ Design Awards, and Finalist Winner of the 13th Modern Decoration International Media Award. The studio has a rigorous methodology of exploring spatial narratives through conceptual drawings and models that explore the humanistic aspects of design, and has been featured on Archdaily, Elle Decor and Wallpaper* Magazine.
