Valley House Residential apartment by Bean Buro

Home > Winners > #64256


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Valley House

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential apartment

INSPIRATION:
The colour scheme is inspired by the external topography. A calming green colour for the feature wall is a subtle reference to the greenery, as a way to create a dialogue with the outside. This feature wall begins at the entry foyer, and connects the dinning space, living lounge all the way into the open kitchen. It also functions as a high density storage wall, with concealed antiques, and other day to day utilities.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Bean Buro has been appointed to refurbish a 2,500 sqft apartment in Jardines Lookout, Hong Kong. Located at the bottom of a hill, the apartment is surrounded by natural views of green trees and far sight of the city.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The private spaces are considered as small studio apartments within the big apartment. A timber lined corridor differentiates the private quarters, with concealed doors to the private bedrooms suites. The master bedroom suite features a glass-enclosed bathroom complete with a double sink, shower and a custom-made Japanese tub, and a wooden staircase leading up to a small secret study in the attic, a space that was refurbished from an un-used water tank for the building.

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

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The brief is to house three generations under one roof. The previous existing apartment became tired and dated, and no longer suited the needs of the occupants: a mature couple and a younger couple, with a baby. The challenge is to create a home that builds on the social relationships and interactions of the residents, while still creating a high level of privacy and independence.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The centre piece of the communal space is a social island bar which superimposes itself between the lounge and the open kitchen. This element is made of white marble, incorporating a bio fuel fireplace beneath an artwork by late architect Zaha Hadid. This encourages social interaction in the morning as a cooking island, a breakfast bar and an aperitif area. Frameless glass partitions divides halfway between the bar table to contain cooking smell inside the kitchen if needed.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In order to manage the dynamics between the different views and likings from the older and the younger couple, our methodology during the brief development was to create workshop style presentation with provocative illustrations to get both couples to express all their wish lists.

CHALLENGE:
The main challenge centred on the social relationships of the residents. We wanted to create a feeling of privacy and independence while still offer opportunities for interaction. This required more effort in the way we use forms and materials to differentiate the various spatial atmospheres, while keeping the overall apartment coherent.

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 mid 2013. The diversity of the practice with its collaborators reinforces a core vision for the practice: to respond to the exchanges of global cultural development factors, incorporating overlapping design disciplines in the social, economical and technological production of urban spaces. With a strong believe in architecture being an emotional, spatial experience produced by both the user and the author, the design methodology involves the observation, speculation and analysis of contextual narratives. These narratives, or ‘stories’, generate dynamic exchanges of forces, resulting in inventive interventions inherent with humanistic delights. The practice has since produced a string of successful architecture and interior projects for reputable developers such as Grosvenor, Nan Fung Group and Sun Hung Kai, as well as commercial companies such as Uber, Leo Burnett, Warner Music, Kerry Logistics, and has been nominated for The Prodigy INDE. Awards 2017, 3 nominations in Archdaily Architecture Awards China 2017, awarded Silver Winner in the Asia Pacific Interior Design Award 2015, Runner Up in Architizer A+ Awards 2015, multiple Gold and Silver awards in the A’ Design Awards in three consecutive years, and Finalist Winner of the 13th Modern Decoration International Media Award. The studio has a rigorous methodology in research by design, using high quality drawings and models that explore cultural narratives and the humanistic aspects of design. The works have been featured in Archdaily awards, Interior Design NYC, ID+C, Design Anthology, ELLE, Perspective, Domus, FRAME and Wallpaper* Magazine.
