Black Beans Apartment by Bean Buro

Home > Winners > #64851


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Black Beans

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Apartment

INSPIRATION:
Bean Buro responded with a design that is flexible and durable, while ensuring the space would feel fresh and simple with subtle details that are playful and fun for the young children, as well as ensuring a high level of design elegance for the adults.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Bean Buro designed an innovative apartment in the south of the island, at the Baguio Villa of Hong Kong, for a young family of four. The parents previously lived in a smaller apartment with a young child in the busier mid-levels district of Hong Kong, and wanted to relocate to a quieter villa community that is close to the ocean for the expanding family with a second child arriving.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
For example, the long continuous curvy wall is also a high density storage wall that connects the entrance foyer, lounge, dinning, all the way into the deep end of the kitchen, with a concealed walk in storage space. The master bedroom has an innovative spatial arrangement that partitions the walk in wardrobe space and a dressing space from behind the bed area with a half height partition at the bed frame which has a transparent glass wall that preserves the openness of the room.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in May 2016 and finished in July 2017

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The project is designed with children activities in mind, hence the materials finishes must be durable to withstand daily wear and tear from children vehicles, toys and graffiti. The walls in the children rooms have been coated with a strengthened paint finish that increases surface resistance, and high quality European ceramic floor tiles moulded in subtle timber textures that provide a natural appearance while resistant to stains and scratches.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The design features a pair of children rooms that are highly flexible and can be connected to form one big play room. Each of these rooms can be partitioned with operable folding doors to form an individual room for each child, and the rooms can be partitioned from the lounge and dinning area with a concealed sliding door that acts as an acoustic separation to ensure the kids rooms are quiet for sleeping in the event of an adults party in the apartment.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
This project is a fresh solution to integrating innovative ideas in a humanistic manner. It represents a contemporary living space that addresses the complex relationships between the members of a growing family. While the overall design aesthetic responded to the external wavy mountains and the calming nature of the ocean villa, one of the main challenges was to create a materials scheme that would balance the husbands likings for dark black colours, with the wifes likings for softer muted colours.

CHALLENGE:
We eventually developed a colour scheme that is composed of neutral tiling colours, muted green joinery colours, and black metal details such as the door handles, frames and display shelves. Luxurious high grade white marble was used in a humble way, delicately integrated into the entrance foyer wall, the display niches in the dinning area, and the inner private bathroom for the master bedroom ensuite.

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.
