Hong Kong - Urban Penthouse
April 22, 2010 - Central
This stylish Hong Kong residence features a contemporary makeover punctuated by historic art pieces.
Located on Caine road in Central Hong Kong, this light-rich two-bedroom apartment encompasses 172 sq m of living space and offers wide views of Hong Kong skyline.
A dramatic lift lobby with a black Baccarat chandelier and a 17th century Burmese statue leads into the recently renovated residence.
Inside, a fusion of contemporary lines, considered lighting and antique accents - courtesy of Jean-Louis Arensma and Hanford Consultants - create a relaxed, yet edifying environment.
Blond oak wood floors from France add subtle warmth to the living spaces, which are fitted with top-of-the-line appliances from Siemens and furnishings from brands including Minotti, OVO and Kartell.
The kitchen and bar feature white Corian counters and sleek lacquer cabinets and open into the spacious living area, creating an ideal place for friends to gather.
Meanwhile, subtle details like floor LED lights and extra volume doors expand the effect of the corridor leading to the private living spaces; bedrooms, bathrooms and study.
A mix of antique ornaments and East Asian textures are juxtaposed with contemporary touches throughout the apartment.
The living room, for example, features edgy portraits by controversial Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf as well as wooden statues from Burma and a stately 15th century Chinese altar.
The bedroom's tranquil ambience is furthered through muted paintings by celebrated Sri Lankan artist Chandra Bhattacharjee and black marble candelabras from Vietnam. The residence includes parking.
