High above the pulsating streets of Chinatown, this three-room Housing Board flat is a serene and breezy haven. “I wanted to promote its cross ventilation and make the interiors linear,” says designer Francis Leong.
“We pretty much ripped everything up and then focused on the quality of the space. The aim of the material selection is to ensure that the space looks good even after five or 10 years.”
For Francis, the project holds special meaning to him. His client is a long-time friend of more than 20 years. “The layout also has strong sentimental value to me, because I grew up with (this type of home) until I was 12,” he shares. “It reminds me of my childhood space. I was very excited when she told me about the unit.”
