Three-bedroom, four-bathroom bachelor pad looks out on bridge and busy shipping channel, but step inside for a calming effect. With four-metre ceilings and white walls, it is flooded with natural light. Despite all the action, the home, renovated last year by Another Design International, is a serene space that makes he most of it’s stunning location, with generously sized windows and a large wrap-around deck.

Pal Pang, of Another Design International, came to the new-build project last summer after the homeowner — a young Hong Kong entrepreneur — saw his work in a lifestyle magazine. “He liked the style of a few of the projects I had completed,” Pang says. “He is very busy and travels a lot, so didn’t have time to manage the project. I handled everything from start to finish.”

The modern, 2,400 sq. Ft apartment is spread over two levels, with a terrace and plunge pool to one side and a cantilevered balcony off the living room. “This is a great house because the architecture is so contemporary,” says Pang. “The living area has four-metre ceilings and full-height glass windows that flood the space with natural light. After discussions, the client agreed to keep it simple, with a minimal design and well-chosen furniture.”

The real change came in the decorative elements and the choice of furniture and fittings. With white walls and marble flooring throughout, Pang felt the house needed to be warmed and softened to make it a home. To this end, he used American walnut to clad the ceiling of the open-plan living and dining areas and a wall of storage cupboards. “When the space is lit in the evening, it is very warm and inviting,” he says.

The designer also created a three-dimensional feature wall using acoustic tiles, which both absorb sound and create a visually interesting element on the living room’s longest wall. Once the six-month renovation was under way, Pang focused on finding furniture pieces in consultation with his client, who spends just a few days a month in Hong Kong. Since Pang has a practice in Britain as well as Hong Kong, he took advantage of Europe’s better furniture prices to choose designer pieces that should stand the test of time.
