Bright Curves Residence Residence

A new home for a young family, the design is the second commission for the studio in the Hong Kong neighbourhood of Jardine's Lookout. A contemporary residence for children and adults with space for play and entertaining. The new three bedroom flat is to be a blend of mid-century influences from East and West. Drawing equal inspiration from the concern from craft and materials of mid-century modernism and use of more traditional techniques of building in Hong Kong the apartment seeks a synthesis between these two influences.

AFFECT-T is a young design studio located in the heart of Hong Kong. The directors Dylan Baker-Rice and Damita Yu having worked for Zaha Hadid and Bjarke Ingles respectively, began the practice in London before relocating to Asia. The studio is a small practice which focuses on select projects. They specialise in culural, residential, and commercial works with a strong focus on design, the making of space, experience, craft, and sustainability. The aim of the studio is that the experience of spaces should be lasting, memorable, and adaptable to individuals while uniquely suited to the client and brief.


A private commission for a young family. The clients are in the creative industry and wanted a space which would reflect their individuality and taste. Contemporary in their tastes, they are avid art collectors and collectors of mid-century designs. The commission was to house their distinct collection and display their pieces in the best possible light while providing generous living environment for entertaining, covering everything from formal dinner parties to play-dates for their children. The bedrooms were to be unique and fun places for the children and the master bedroom and bath spaces to be clean tranquil spaces. In some ways the apartment should be an oasis from hectic city life of Hong Kong but also reflect excitement of living in a unique city and environment.
