The well-preserved conservation house.
The intentional deconstructed look.
2200sf. 2 storeys + Attic. 2 big bedrooms (1 with a huge walk-in wardrobe) & a smaller 3rd bedroom which works as a guestroom or study & 2 bathrooms.
The patchy, uneven tone and a little scruffy looking walls are deliberate. The idea is to achieve an unfinished, incomplete look. Not too polished. The original timber flooring is retained and stained white. The louvred windows are refurbished and painted over with apple green and white to freshen up the look. Matching green pendant lamps are hung up in the living space to create the vintage/retro feel. Reminiscent of old Hong Kong. Those who are familiar, it reminds us of a scene in the movie, Wong Kar-Wai’s Chungking Express. The period charm is recaptured by combining the refurbished old features and a few vinatge furniture pieces. The simple white and modern kitchen and bathrooms create a nice balance.
Otherwise, it’d exude too much oldish feel.
The dining space has a romantic setting and the kitchen is connected via 2 doorways- one on the left and the other on the right. A bathroom right at the back for your guests.
The original sturdy timber staircase gets you to the family area. A loft-style apt was kinda incorporated on this floor of the house. You’d see more of the exposed brick wall, super high ceiling and exposed roof rafters and beams.
So, on this floor, you’d have a main bedroom with a spacious walk-in wardrobe room, family area, a study and a bathroom which has 2 access. One via the spiral staircase. It’s really quite cool.
The modern staircase leads you to the attic which is the 2nd bedroom. Pretty spacious too.
If you are looking for something different in a way of living space, in a city where most reside in largely interchangeable new modern apt block or high rise apt, this house is the answer. It offers you an alternative living experience.
The area is just as exciting. Up and coming.
